about this painting:
All that love
Since ancient times, artists have worked on images of a naked female body. However, each epoch, each culture chose its types, genres and even poses, idealizing and naturalizing the female body. Today it is sometimes difficult to separate in these images the beautiful from the ugly, the ethical from the pornographic, because the idea of what this body carries to the observant has changed.
Let’s make a small journey into the history and find out how the genre was changing in time:
- The epoch of antiquity. Nakedness, having ceased to be the object of worship, left art, but it happened, at least a century before the spread of Christianity. In Byzantium, the successor to Greece, this line of fine arts did not develop, but the naked body did not cause rejection.
- In the Renaissance prevailed the tendency to antiquity and antique images, the naked human body became a universal means for personifying any idea.
- In the XX century, with its liberation in clothing, the nude genre in painting gradually began to exhaust itself, so the painters get actively engaged in the search for new artistic means of expression
In the autumn dream
In the painting Misty Love, the artist Leonid Afremov portrayed a naked woman lying on the carpet of autumn leaves. The background of the painting is made in the form of strokes of different colors, in the center is a naked girl. Her left hand lies along the body, her right hand is bended in the elbow, as if thinking. The right leg is also bent at the knee. This pose gives her a blissful look. Cold shades along the edges become warmer as we advance to the center of the picture. The girl's body is surrounded by smears of yellow tones - they not only warm the girl, but make the whole picture warm.
Although we cannot see her face, it seems that the girl, tired of the hot day, fell into a deep sleep. Or thought about something very very intimate. Maybe she lies in anticipation of her prince on a white horse who must come for her.
Summarizing the above it should be said that the picture Misty Love will suit not only art connoisseurs but also the lovers of beauty who want to decorate their interior with one of the most memorable works of the artist Leonid Afremov.
