about this painting:
Jar of Wine
Uncommon accent on ordinary things
What sets an average man apart of a creative personality? The answer is rather simple – breadth of views. Only a man of art can choose seemingly customary themes and make real masterpieces of them. ‘Jar of Wine’ is a vivid example proving a genuine talent of Leonid Afremov. This time he depicted a jar of wine and made it in such a way that the jar, a cut-glass ware unit, became a reason of reflections and sophistication.
When an admirer looks at this wine oil canvas wall art, the first that comes to mind is, probably, Ancient Greek Dionysus cult and a popular expression ‘The truth is in wine’. These two ideas are interconnected in a way. Probably, the ancients reveled in wine knowing its healing power, though it was one day a year. It seems they were aware of the reverse of the medal – alcoholism. Alas, modern civilized society does not share such a principle unanimously. Therefore, many of our contemporaries face this problem.
Wine magnetism on canvas
Just imagine: a room lost in timid shadows, quiet sounds and rustles, a bouquet filling the space with delicate aroma, and a jar of wine with a goblet served on a table. And now look at the picture and contemplate this scene depicted on canvas.
Mr. Afremov chose varied colors, though preferred somber hues. The most widely used are brown-reddish, dark-violet, dim orange and bluish grey. Highlights are on the wine jar and the goblet playing bronze, silver and even bloody red. The latter, apparently, is filled with wine, scarlet liquid.
The picture background is hardly distinctive, and it really does not matter what there is. Looking at the picture, we notice flowers, although they are vague too.
Interior décor tips
