 about this painting:

Dance of the Soul

The Grace of the Ballet

Grace and plasticity of such art as ballet Leonid Afremov tried to convey in his famous work Dance of the Soul, one of his most beautiful paintings. In the painting we see a young ballerina standing in one of the most common poses in ballet – her right hand is raised while the left hand is taken aside, the right foot is stretched back so that she stands on one leg. Despite this very difficult pose it seems that it is very easy for her to keep balance as if she is standing straight on two legs. In fact, this is certainly not so. Although, after long and hard workouts, it has become easier and easier for ballet dancers to maintain their balance and posture; the ones that seemed to be very difficult now are performed with a wet finger.

The glance of our heroine is directed forward into the hall. However, she is so concentrated that she does not notice the reaction of the audience; all her thoughts are occupied with this complex dance.

 The multi-colored paints that Leonid Afremov used to depict the background of the painting make it very expressive. They are very well combined with the white dress of our heroine.

The demanding art

Ballet is a very dainteth art, and therefore it is not very popular in the world. If to be more exact, the ballet is not very popular among the populace that does not rule out the fact that ballet is valued among connoisseurs.

The art of ballet originated long ago, but since then it has hardly changed, since ballet is extremely conservative.

Let’s cite some more interesting facts about this art:

  1. Ballet shoes do not live long. In average, the ballerina changes about three hundred pairs of ballet shoes in a year.
  2. Ballerinas should really be very slim or even skinny. The average weight of a ballerina does not exceed 50 kg.
  3. It takes about 15 meters of tulle and several days to make one tutu.

Enjoy the bright colors of elegant dance. In the case of purchase, they will delight you for a very long time.

We received NINE paintings today! We have fallen in love with so many of Mr Afremov's works that we went a little crazy! Can I just say I AM IN LOVE with them. Opening the box was so much fun. Every one of them was simply beautiful! Such a great variety of colors and rich scenes. I can not wait to get them all hung up. We are still waiting one more shipment and are even more excited to see those now. Thank you so very much Afremov family for all of your communication and for bringing these beautiful works of art into our home. We will proudly display them all over our home.

We bought "Freshness of Cold" a while ago, and we are absolutely in love with it. The purchasing process was easy and issue-free, and the painting came even earlier than promised. We've just bought our second (and third) paintings--we can't have enough! Simply fantastic, beautiful work.
