about this painting:
The cradle of the modern world
All modern countries are becoming more and more similar to each other, and still there are some forces that prevent them from losing their originality. It cannot but cause joy to us, since it allows Leonid Afremov to create such impressive paintings as this one, where a Greek town is depicted, with its unique appearance and atmosphere.
Some reasons for loving Greece
Greece has always been one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and many people have been taking a keen interest in this land. What makes the country so interesting?
1. Culturally, all modern humans today are descended from Ancient Greece, thus is the country the cradle of the modern world.
2. There are many ancient buildings in the country that are worth seeing.
3. Modern Greece is also a very interesting country with charming culture and fascinating nature.
The modern antiquity
Looking at this delightful painting by Leonid Afremov, we see a peculiar town whose peculiarity encourages us to take a good look at the canvas. All contemporary cities look luxurious, and there is a certain coldness reigning on their streets. This town is something contrary. You find no strict lines dividing the space into housing estates, no strict rows of endless windows and lampposts that fill the streets wtith their artificial light. The sunlight is felt everywhere in the air, and nature not only seems to be near the town but seems to be in the very town, for the houses are twined about with the ivy and we see a bouquet of sunflowers on the left. The town is full of plants that appear here and there while your looking round the street. The buildings seem to be so ancient that you feel as if you found yourself in the past, in some Ancient Greek city state full of verses by Homer and beautiful gods waiting for frantic dances and hecatombs.
This lovely cityscape by Leonid Afremov will decorate your house and fill it with the light atmosphere of Ancient Greece that is always so pleasant for us to plunge into.
