about this painting:

Italian Horse

Festal Rider

Once again, welcome to the Venetian Carnival, the festival of colors and smiles that Leonid Afremov depicted on his oil canvas. In the painting we find the contrast of weather and colors – on the one hand we find an amazing palette of various colors and shades that create a festive mood by plunging us into the atmosphere of a carnival, on the other hand the audience in the painting hide themselves under umbrellas. But the sky can hardly be called gloomy. On the contrary, in it we find amazing confetti of bright colors. And our rider is also dressed very brightly, the horse keeps apace with him – her back is adorned with a purple blanket,  beautiful ornaments in the Italian style stretch along her neck. The rider raised his saber up victoriously, urging everyone to follow him and fight for their Italian land. What is behind his back remains a mystery to us – perhaps there is even a cavalry of the riders.

Welcome to the fest!

Venetian carnival is one of the most incredible, mysterious and exquisite show of the planet. Let's learn some interesting facts about it:

  1. Napoleon Bonaparte banned the Venetian Carnival. You may wonder – what does Bonaparte have to do with it? But it was this famous French commander who conquered the Venetian Republic at the end of the 18thcentury and banned the Venice Carnival. Obviously, the emperor was afraid of attempts and conspiracies under the masks.
  2. Venetian mask was a cover for thieves and fraudsters. Why? Once there was a whole "mask culture" in the republic. The Venetians were allowed to wear them not only on the days of the carnival, but also on certain weekdays. Then many citizens tended to abuse this right committing unseemly deeds, for example, visited dens.
  3. The word carnival originated from the words phrase “carne, vale!” – “meat, goodbye!” –

 the Venice Carnival, like Shrovetide, in the Middle Ages was timed by the church to the beginning of Great Lent.

 Feel the festive mood of the painting through the canvas. And may it please you in any weather and under any circumstances. Feel the atmosphere of the Venetian carnival and the warmth of human emotions!

Hello, Leonid. I'm a 19th years-old girl. Recently, I discovered your work; then, I'm visiting the gallery every day, it's wonderful. I'm completely in love with your oil paintings. Unfortunately, I haven't enough money to buy one, but I would love it. You're amazing. Thank you for sharing your art with us, and give us a bright and colorful view of the world.

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
