about this painting:
GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE
Sunset at Golden Gate Bridge
What is interesting about Impressionism? It is so versatile! It varies from the continent to continent and from one person to another. Impressionist Australian art, for instance, differs considerably from the art of French Impressionists, and there is a reason for it. Having different background, people perceive the same phenomena differently, and this influences life and creates different conditions for development. Other priorities come out to the scene, and other principles are formed. If you want to compare the art, you can make some search and look at the works of famous painters who belonged to the movement:
· Arthur Streeton
· Walter Withers
· Tom Roberts
· Charles Conder and etc.
Formation of cultural background and its influence on art
This versatility is actually great as it makes the world more multicolored and interesting. Some Australian artists in the late 19th century belonged to Heidelberg school because they painted ‘en plein air’ in the Heidelberg area. Now this movement is described as Australian impressionism.
They provided visual complements to Australian folk tales thus excluding the possibility that similar works could appear in some other place. Cultural background is formed on some historic unconscious that creates the nation. All nations differ from each other and different symbols make them inspired.
Golden Gate Bridge is a national symbol of USA
Things that are recognizable in Australia are unknown in the USA. This is the country of freedom and different symbols are chosen here. Looking at the Golden Gate Bridge, all recognize this national American symbol at once. This is a symbol of San Francisco, and it is internationally known as it is one of the most beautiful bridges in the world. It is also photographed a lot. Afremov uses the Golden Gate Bridge to show the beauty of the sunset. He uses the most saturated colors to present the most beautiful American cityscape. He managed to catch the most fabulous moment when the painting is especially stunning and presented it in his own unique way. Fabulous Golden Gate Bridge has never been so striking as in Afremov’s vision. If you place this painting on the wall, it will definitely attract the attention at any interior.
