about this painting:
In the heart of Switzerland
Freiburg, created by Leonid Afremov, is a nice German town with an interesting cityscape. The painter creates the artwork in an intentionally simplified manner that looks a little naïve and even childish. Afremov creates his own world on the basis of real places as he shows the way these locations look in his perception. Writing about his impressions, he presents this world to his numerous admirers. We are ready to adopt it too because it is much more attractive at times than the real world. Viewers are even happier to see theartworks that have nothing common with reality. Real world often does not give a chance to relax therefore Afremov’s version of the world is preferred by viewers. Otherwise, it would be impossible to unwind and submerge to another world. When this world does not exist, the result is more effective.
Legends of Freiburg
The locals of Freiburg seem to be fond of beautiful stories too, therefore they like to tell the legends how Freiburg became free. They tell about thebutcher who stabbed the bishop, and the citizens of the city had to pay annual expiation to the middle of the 14th century. The citizen fought for freedom, hence the name of the town: Freiburg. It is translated as a Free City.In the end, they paid for their independence.
The story is quite ordinary and there is nothing heroic in it. The legend can even be true, so pragmatic it is. Just like the Germans whodiffer from other nations much. Other distinguishing features of Germans:
· Fear of uncertainty (therefore they prefer to stick to order)
· Planning in advance
Now you can see an overall picture of Freiburg.
German town described by Leonid Afremov
We see a typical German landscape of a town located in a valley. There is a German church in it and some other public buildings.There is an ideal order in Germans towns but Impressionist artist always writes his impressions and does not try to reflect the subjects with precision, the way the Germans do their work.
Impressionist painters prefer to work outside as they create their artworks Studio works were necessary because the painters were not able to create their works ‘enplein air’ – they did not have paints in tubes.
As technical possibility appeared, it gave boost to development of Impressionism as artists tried to catch every single moment that was of interest to them. They created series of works for this purpose.
