about this painting:


Passion of the race

Are you interested in equestrian sports? Or maybe you even participate in the competitions? In any case, you will be surprised by the variety of colors Leonid Afremov used in his canvas called Leader – the painting which depicts one of the most spectacular sports – equestrian one. All the passion of a race is transmitted through the canvas. It is not by chance that the painting is called Leader – the rider in red, protagonist of the canvas, creates its main mood. However, we see that his rivals are very close and are about to catch him up. It seems that he overtook them just in a few centimeters or even millimeters. It's a question of second decimal places of a second. And the expression “to breathe down neck” is no longer applicable here.

The riders' multi-colored uniforms very closely match the impressionist style of the artist who tried to use as many paints as possible to depict his characters – but some riders have even a helmet of the color  different from the color of their uniform. Thus, the rider that on the right hand of the leader has a yellow helmet while his uniform is made mostly in white colors. This painting is distinguished from many other canvases by the absence of bright colors in the background, but in this case they are not needed there, the bright uniforms of the athletes fill the painting with a sufficient amount of colors.


Of course, equestrian sport, like all other sports, has its own advantages and disadvantages. But surely there much more advantages. They are:

  1. It’s good remedy against different diseases;
  2. It helps to stabilize the nervous system and normalize the emotional background
  3. Recover mental processes;
  4. Help to lose weight.

Besides equestrian sports help not only to stay healthy but be self-confident – during the competition, the rider should be able to feel the horse as better as possible and master his own movements.

Always ride high with the painting by Leonid Afremov. Feel the hazard and sports passion of equestrian competitions! And maybe if you don’t go in for it yourself, you will make your child take up this beautiful sport!

Gracias Sr. Afremov!! Sus pinturas me llenan de felicidad y puedo quedarme mirándolas horas y nunca me canso de hacerlo. Actualmente tengo cuatro y en cuanto pueda seguiré comprando porque usted tiene un don que me ha llegado a lo más profundo. Y sobre todo muchas gracias por poner su arte al alcance de gente corriente que no tiene los recursos para gastarse cantidades elevadas en arte.
Paintings are absolutely beautiful, and the customer service was excellent (All issues were taken care of immediately)
