 about this painting:


A dance with a glorious past

Ballet is an art with a long history. It goes back to Medieval times when graceful dancers performed in royal ballrooms and on stages of luxurious theaters in front of a sophisticated public. Since then, the spirit of dance has changed, new styles have appeared that have very little in common with the noble moves that used to be considered the summit of artistry a few centuries ago. However, ballet still stays a beautiful and highly appreciated form of dance art that gathers full halls and keeps enchanting us with its delicate charm. This wonderful painting by Leonid Afremov called ‘In the Ballet Class’ skillfully conveys the beauty of ballet on canvas.

Striving to perfection

Look at this slender, graceful ballerina! She is rehearsing her dance before an important performance. When you are on stage, you have no right to make a mistake. Everyone is looking at you, the lights illuminate your every step and every wave of your hand is clearly visible to the viewers. That’s why you should bring every move to perfection and show your best, otherwise the magic of the dance can be easily broken. The girl in the picture is trying hard to learn her part in the upcoming spectacle. She is standing on tiptoes, her legs stretched like wires and her posture immaculately straight. Her hands are soaring in the air like the wings of a bird. She perfectly controls her body and seems to be a beautiful angel in her delicate white dress. In a few days, she will shine on stage and bask in the applauses of the admiring audience. But even now, simply learning the moves in the ballet class, she inspires us with her grace, tenderness and persistence.

Even more amazing paintings!

Our two newest acquisitions arrived today: "Boat under the sky" and "Town under the sky". Breathtaking! Just indescribably beauty. The colors are incredibly vibrant, the scenes at once exciting and calming, the texture is so multi-dimensional it literally places you inside the landscape. i've never seen art that is simply transforming the way you feel about your surroundings and life in general. Only Leonid's masterpieces do that--every single time. These two originals are our 24th and 25th large paintings. It has become a pleasant addiction:). These two paintings were custom made for us and they are truly special. Absolutely love them!!! The customer service and support are just amazing. Peerless! We are very happy and grateful to Leonid, Boris and David for the beauty they so generously share with the world. Do yourself a favor and buy a few pieces. Your home and your heart will be filled with joy, happiness and love. Gratefully, Dr Lani Kass
