LAST KISS 2
MOMENTS TO REMEMBER
There are some moments in our lives that will stay with us forever. Some of them are connected with our family, friends or career success. However, the most intimate and highly valued are probably of the times you fell in love, no matter if you are still with that person or not.
Our existence is generally painful and sad. The life is unfair, the ecology is bad, people are cruel and selfish. Yet, when love comes to your life, it suddenly gets better. If it is a truly strong feeling, not just passion or some unhealthy attachment, it makes you happy. By nature, we are like that, to find a mate is our true predestination.
DIFFERENT KINDS OF LOVE
Ancient Greeks were great philosophers. They wanted to understand how the world works. Love seemed to them a worthy subject to study too.
Aristotle, one the most well-known Ancient thinkers, proposed a classification of 4 different kinds of love that you can have in life:
- Eros – this type of love is extremely emotional and based on physical desire. It comes and goes away very fast. Usually, it is lived by young unexperienced people.
- Philia – appears between friends. Its peculiarity is that you choose a person towards whom you experience philia. It is created by the commonness in characters and interests. It is not eternal love, and can end any moment.
- Storge – it takes time to form storge. This is the kind of love that appears after many years of marriage. When you know all his or her defects, fails and weaker points, but you still love them.
- Agape – all of us dream about this love, which is stronger than death. It is innocent, giving and ready to sacrifice everything for the object of your love. It does not care about looks, money or whatever else. It takes discipline, patience and hard work but the result is worth it one hundred percent.
NIGHT SPENT TOGETHER
‘Last kiss’ original painting by Leonid Afremov is unbelievable romantic. As usual, it distinguishes by its colorfulness and amazing expressive technique.
Two nude figures are saying goodbye to each other after a long night. This artwork is at the same time gay and nostalgic. The name of the painting ‘Last kiss’ means that they probably never going to see each other because of original and mysterious peripeteias of life. The angel of love has obviously visited them, we can see how affectionate and tender is their kiss. However, for some reason they cannot stay together forever, like in a fairytale.
But the cheerful palette also gives us hope that separation of lovers on Afremov’s ‘Last kiss’ original painting is only temporary.
