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.
