about this painting:
Eric Clapton 2
Caressing the guitar
Perhaps Clapton can be called one of the most recognizable musicians in the world. That is why Leonid Afremov chose his image for his painting. One cannot help but emphasize the amazing similarity of the image with the musician himself. Leonid very carefully approached this work. He showed with amazing accuracy not only the figure of the musician but also his facial expressions and mood. The musician is thoughtful and focused as usual at his concerts. If you know even some facts about his life and watched at least several recordings of his concerts, you surely should have formed an image similar to the one that the artist portrayed. Clapton is always strict and accurate. You will hardly find any record where he is dressed informally - he always has a suit or a shirt. Hairstyle and glasses also adds some strictness to the image. In his hands we see a guitar, the main instrument of the musician. Everyone knows that he not only artistically sings but also professionally plays the guitar.
A visit to his concert is an extraordinary event in the life of every melomane. The audience is braced in anticipation of excellent music and hearing the first sounds realizes that their expectations have fully satisfied. The people are ready to listen to this marvelous playing eternally. But as it often happens a multi-hour concert spins away in a few minutes. But the impressions remain with them for life. And the music of the Great Master will play in their heads for a few more days.
We are sure that all the fans and even those who know and love this musician will certainly want to have in his house Eric Clapton 2, this splendid painting by Leonid Afremov.
Comprehending the master
Do you think you know everything about the famous musician? We tried to find the facts you hardly knew about:
- One of the most famous of his compositions, Layla, Eric dedicated to Patti Boyd, who at that time was married to a close friend of Eric – George Harrison. In 1976, Boyd left the ex-Beatle for Clapton.
- In 1991, in the life of Clapton, a tragedy occurred: his five-year-old son died, falling out of the window on the 53rd floor of a skyscraper. The musician was depressed for more than a year. Subsequently, Clapton dedicated his son the heartbreaking ballad Tears in Heaven, which became one of his most famous songs.
- The acoustic version of Layla composition in 1993 was awarded the "Grammy" in the nomination "the best rock song", bypassing the superhit of Kurt Cobain Smells Like Teen Spirit. According to Clapton, he changed the arrangement of the song, because he was too old to play the original high-speed riff.
