about this painting:



Leonid Afremov is greatly inspired by dancers and musicians. These professions are indeed very close to the profession of an artist since every one of them is trying to express deep emotions and thoughts.

Afremov is a great artist who knows how to work with paint and brushes. However, he couldn’t resist proposing his own way to apply paint on canvas. A palette knife is his main instrument in the process of creating a new work of art.

He painted a whole series of works dedicated to musicians. Amongs Afremov’s bright and cheerful artworks, the reserved and calm fiddler painting stands apart. On this canvas, you can see a bearded man in poor clothing. His face is smart and shrewd. He is watching the passers-by with irony but at the same time with interest.

The palette of this canvas is rather unique. It lacks bright colors and drastic contrasts that you can usually notice at Afremov’s paintings. On the contrary, this artwork is painted in gentle pastel colors. The brightest spot on the painting is the fiddler’s waistcoat and the violin.

On the background, we can see the city wall and churches of Jerusalem. They seem to be submerged in a mysterious dream-like mist.

Musicians on canvas

There are other canvases that might interest you if you would like to purchase one of Afremov’s canvases dedicated to music:

  • Michael Jackson

Everybody who likes Afremov’s expressive manner, vibrant colors and the King of pop-music, pay attention to this enormous painting of Michael Jackson. Afremov is a big fan of his music himself, and was greatly inspired by his art in difficult times. On the canvas, you can see a figure of a famous singer on stage in the limelight.

  • Jazz Trio

“Jazz Trio” is one of the most talented paintings by Leonid Afremov. In the center of composition there are three musicians. One of them is playing the piano, the other two are playing the saxophone. You can see how passionately they perform their music to the listeners. This painting makes us think about the beginning of the last century, the Jazz Age and the pleasure of living that we usually associate with this musical genre.

  • Sing my guitar

On this canvas, we can see a lonely middle-aged musician with a guitar. He is wearing a romantic-looking waistcoat and a hat. His long fingers are gently touching the strings. The background is unclear because Afremov wants our attention to be completely concentrated on the central character. Red, bright blue and white splashes of color create a sensation of energy and power, which mark his music.

Oh my goodness. I just received Misty Mood 2. I will treasure this for the rest of my life. Colors vibrant. It is perfect. Inspired by the original but this one is uniquely mine to treasure. Can't believe I own this. I have prints and poster of other great artists but now I am part of the art culture. This is so cool. And, I just found a spot in my home for a second painting "By the Lake". I am closer to 50 than 40 but it felt like Christmas when this arrived on my porch and I carefully opened this. So, so happy. You will not regret a Afremov purchase.
