about this painting:
CORRIDA – DANGEROUS OPPONENT
A dangerous art form
Can a murder be beautiful? If you feel sick and shake your head negatively, then you have never seen Spanish corrida. People all over the world perceive bullfighting differently. Some of them believe that toreros show great courage and should be treated as heroes, others claim this show is cruel and violate animals’ rights. Emotions are opposite, but no one can be indifferent while looking at the arena. It’s up to you to decide whom you like more – the wild bull that is to be killed, or the matador who is likely to be injured by a horn. No matter what side attracts you, corrida is one of those things that you should see with your own eyes.
Moment of glory
This painting is created by one of the best abstract artists of nowadays – Leonid Afremov. He captured a moment that is full of tension when the torero has no right to make a mistake. One wrong movement – and he can be wounded badly by a bull, so he has to be very together and patient. To understand this situation better, ask yourself a few questions:
- Can you imagine yourself in this man’s place? How would you feel? While looking at this picture, you can feel the adrenalin that starts rushing in your veins, can’t you?
- Where does this action take place? There are a lot of countries that banned this dangerous show.
- What will be in the end of this fight? Will a bull be murdered, or will he kill his opponent?
- Who will get the glory and sympathy: the winner or the loser?
There may be a lot of other questions that may interest you. If you don’t want to go deeper, you can simply enjoy a nice picture.
