The Painting of Saint Petersburg
As Leonid Afremov has traveled a lot in his life, he has many outstanding cityscapes in his collection. They are the paintings of such European cities as Venice, Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, landmarks in America and Russia. Sometimes, when he wanted to depict all of the beauty of one exact moment, he would take a photo and then later, in the relaxed atmosphere of home, he would paint it in a canvas. Saint Petersburg has always been one of Afremov’s favorite cities in Russia. This particular canvas can definitely freshen up and brighten any interior and become the center of attention for your guests. If you’ve been to Saint Petersburg before, it will help to evoke all good memories you had there. If you still haven’t visited this beautiful city then this painting of a talented Russian painter can become a great motivation for you to make your dream come true.
