CORRIDA – DANCE WITH THE BULL

Dangerous way of entertainment

It is true that nowadays Spain can hardly be imagined without corrida – a risky dance with bulls or the dance with death, as it is believed. This spectacular and dangerous way of entertainment has always been a part of the national culture of this country. Many boys in Spain dream to become a bullfighter when they grow up. And this is understandable. Dancing with the bull performed by the matador is an expression of victory, courage and enthusiasm. During this action you need not only to get away from the bull, but also to act very gracefully. Despite the growing popularity of corrida, we can hear many opposite viewpoints regarding this bullfighting: the defenders of animals are against such kind of bulls torture and thus banned this tradition in some cities of Spain.

A moment of tension

Anyways, corrida will always fire our imagination no matter if we observe it in real, on TV or on such wonderful oil paintings as Corrida – Dance With The Bull by Leonid Afremov. The wealth of colors and strokes on this canvas helps us imagine this breathtaking moment so vividly. Leonid has fairly proved he has talent not only in portrait painting, but also in depicting the bright moments of action, the moments of life. This moment is really full of tension and danger, and though we cannot see the face of this matador just like on any other portrait painting in oil by Afremov, it is easy to notice how subtle and quick this torero is, when making the angry bull pass close by, so that it cannot make any harm to this brave person. Such action requires lots of practice and courage, this matador seems to be a real expert, and we can notice this due to the amazing skills and talent of Leonid Afremov, who managed to capture this moment of bullfight in all its beauty.

Some more facts about corrida

What else do we know about corrida and people making this show so unbelievable and stunning? Here is some general information about this national tradition of Spain:

  • Only fighting bulls can participate in corrida, these are the special bulls, which are kept separately and are always taken good care of;
  • A fighting bull should reach the weight of more than 900 pounds;
  • Matador is a key member of the team, the literal translation is "the one who kills";
  • Picador is the youngest member of the team acting with a lance. He is the one to help matador when he is in danger;

 

Many people all over the world come to Spain to see corrida in real. And though the perception of this show can be different, the fact remains the same – this gorgeous fight between a human and a bull, expressed in a form of a dance cannot leave anyone indifferent. Whatever opinion you may have about this national tradition, such amazing paintings as Corrida – Dance With The Bull will definitely impress you by its uniqueness and color strength.

Testimonials
I have three prints of Mr. Afremov, and I must say that they are the most beautiful works I have ever had the blessing of laying eyes on. I would love to someday be able to afford a print of the one featured today that is reminiscent of the colors of the Russian Autumn, as that is my favorite season. Thank you Mr. Afremov for sharing your gift with the world. If there is anyone reading this that has not yet had the pleasure of owning a painting or print thereof of this gentleman's works, I highly recommend you give one a try. His shipping is fast and items are impeccably wrapped. You will become a lifelong fan, I guarantee it!

We are now the proud owners of 14 (!!!!) of Leonid Afremov's masterpieces. And, no, we don't own a gallery, though our home begins to look like one. Our initial order was the first time ever we ordered art on line and literally fell in love. Our newest installment of 8 masterpieces arrived yesterday and it's simply breath-taking. We bought out Leonid's Jerusalem series--all of it because the paintings are so beautiful a choice was just impossible. So we bought it all!! Sounds crazy, but it's spectacular! What an amazing talent! Leonid recreates everything! Light, air, flowers, stones, air, color, atmosphere--it's all alive and real. I smile every time I look at the pictures. No material possession has ever made me so very happy! These masterpieces literally lift your mood!!! You just can't be sad with so much beauty, color, movement and energy surrounding you. Phenomenal!!! Many thanks to the Master and his two sons, Boris and David. Leonid's remarkable genius is enhanced by his sons' acumen and superb attitude. Customer care and attention are second to none. Truly a pleasure to deal with. Customer satisfaction is job one--and it's for real, not empty words. Immediate, courteous response. Rare quality these days. We have 3 originals coming and are excited to welcome these new additions to our already amazing collection. Meanwhile, we are enjoying the beauty we already have. Trashed every other art work to liberate wall space for Leonid's masterpieces. Do yourself a favor and buy a couple of paintings! On second thought, make yourself real happy and buy a dozen! Such amazing beauty is rarely affordable. This true art is.
