about this painting:
The artist’s large canvas paintings are dedicated to many subjects. This one depicts flowers – asters. These flowers were highly valued even by the ancient Greeks. By the way, translated from the ancient Greek language, the name of the flower means “star”. It is mentioned in the legends and tales of many nations. Perhaps you read some of them:
- In an ancient legend the aster is considered as the tears of Persephone, who shed them because of unrequited love. Like stardust, tears fell on the earth and turned into asters.
- The Chinese people associated these flowers with neatness, accuracy, politeness and modesty
- Hungarians also called this flower an autumn rose and considered it to be the most beautiful autumn flower
- There is a belief that aster reminds us of our decay and inability to heavenly life.
It ‘s quite strange, but among different nations, the petals of asters served as different symbols – from elegance and beauty to hate. So in one flower a whole bunch of associations is combined. Now you have at least a slight idea of what the author wants to say in the work when he depicts these flowers on his canvas.
No matter how we interpret the painting by Leonid Afremov, it is in any case full of bright colors and harmonious shades. Using them, the artist managed to instill in us such feelings as calmness and tranquility. And all this has been achieved thanks to the right choice of paints and shades and the palette knife technique always used by the artist. Warm colors that are present in large quantities in the painting are felt through the canvas. You can feel them much stronger if you purchase this painting on the site.
