about this painting:
Gallery in the Old City
Touching the antiquity
If you have not been to the famous city of Jerusalem, the place meaningful for many of us, captured in thousands of paintings, like this one, then you definitely need to visit it. It seems to us that every person should touch the history of our civilization and in many respects it began here, in this ancient city, which represents a point of contact between the main world religions. It is hard to imagine how much this ground has experienced, how many mysteries it holds that we solve so far.
In his painting, Leonid Afremov depicted a gallery in the Old City, or rather not the gallery itself, but only the entrance to it. So, we see a stone wall, typical of the old city, and massive doors of the main entrance and small ones – a service entrance. In front of the door stand vases with flowers. They add a lot of light to the painting, making it even brighter, filling it with amazing colors that are so few in this southern city. Here dominate various shades of brown, yellow and beige – the color of sand and desert. In front of the door stands a girl with an umbrella in her hand and all the tiles in front of the gallery glitter from the rain that is rather strange, because rain is quite a rare phenomenon for this territory. Surely our character does not aim to visit the gallery, because, apparently, it is already quite late – the entrance to the gallery is illuminated by 2 bright lanterns – and she just stopped to admire the beautiful flower beds.
The city of the world, the city of three religions, Jerusalem has more than seventy names, expressing the love of millions of people around the world to it. Let’s name a few facts about it:
- Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world. The date of its foundation is 3000 years before Christ.
- The city is a place where the three largest religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – intersect.
- The status of Jerusalem remains one of the central point of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
We wish you pleasant impressions from viewing the canvas. Some of you may remember the familiar places if you have been to Jerusalem! Well, for those who have not been to this amazing city, the cradle of our civilization, this painting will be a reminder of the need to visit this wonderful place.
