about this painting:
GIRL IN BLACK
The charm of tango
Tango is perhaps the most passionate dance invented on earth. Its graceful silhouettes and sleek moves have equally fascinated the royal ballrooms of Europe and the shabby bars of Argentina. Hundreds of couples felt the fire of passion burning between them as they glided over the dance floor to a classic tango tune. No wonder Leonid Afremov decided to portray his beautiful couple in one of his works. With his special palette knife technique, the artist can make the paint dance even using just two colors, blue and black! Canvas paintings created by his skillful hand captivate us at once as proven by this amazing portrait.
A lovely couple
- The painting shows a pair of dancers captured in motion. They were just about to make the next step; we can nearly see their feet move. The flaming rhythm of tango is carrying them away. Their bodies are so close they seem to form a single contour; their right hands are clasped in the heat of the moment. You can feel tension mounting in the air!
- The man is dressed in a simple yet fine brown suit. Although we can’t really see his face, from the way he holds himself we can tell that he must be a reliable and experienced partner. However, he is certainly not the main hero of the story.
- The artist focused his attention on the girl dressed in a gorgeous black dress. Revealing and at the same time very elegant, it opens her back and teases the viewer’s eye with a playful skirt. In long black gloves, her hands look particularly graceful. Her left leg is put around a partner’s ankle which adds even more spice to the painting.
The scene unfolds against a scattering of flaky blue strokes that form a breathing background of the canvas. Although the primary palette chosen by the artist is cold, we can really feel electricity between the two unknown dancers. Whether they are professionals performing onstage or just a pair of restaurant visitors who decided to knock themselves out after a glass of wine, there definitely should be a place for this charming tango painting on your wall!
