about this painting:

Misty Music 1

To the strains of cello

In one of his music paintings on canvas called Misty Music 1 Leonid portrayed a street musician playing the cello. He skillfully holds this complicated instrument in his hands. To all appearances, he has long been playing this instrument and this is his main earnings. He shared the fate of many street musicians - great talents. They could perform at the most popular venues existing at that time, but something went wrong in their lives, someone could not finish the music school, someone simply did not have enough money to get an education, and now they are forced to play in the streets attracting crowds of people, caressing their ears with their magnificent play. Despite the fact that he has not a large fortune, just a few cents in his pocket, the musician is what we call a sharp dressed man. He is dressed in a gorgeous suit consisting of a jacket, trousers, hat, vest, shirt and tie. Everything on him looks perfect - every article of clothing is brought to perfection. Under the hat we see the kind face of a young black man. It is obvious that the action takes place in America in the 20s - the early 30s, when racial segregation was still gaining momentum, and talented people from among blacks found it difficult to force their ways to decent life. That's why among street musicians you could often meet black people, and for sure it was a great success for spectators and listeners to meet such a musician - there was no need to pay anything to listen to a talented performer.

The upbeat mood of the painting the artist used a bright palette of colors that convince us that the musician has undoubtedly the success ahead and he will finally break through and take a rightful place in life!

These wonderful tunes

As we said the musician is playing cello. This instrument is not so popular as guitar and some other stringed instruments, that’s why we selected the most interesting facts about this instrument which might somehow make its image clearer to you:

  1. Count Vil'egorsky owned two beautiful cellos of Stradivarius. One of them later belonged to K.Yu. Davydov, then to Jacqueline du Pre, now it is owned by a famous cellist and composer Yo-Yo Ma.
  2. One day an original contest was held in Paris in which took part the great cellist The goal was to listen to the sound of ancient instruments made by the masters Guarneri and Stradivari, and to compare it with the sound of modern cellos made at the factory.
  3. Cellist Pablo Casals loved and spoiled his instruments. In the bow of one cello he inserted a sapphire, which was presented to him by the queen of Spain.

Thank you so much. I never thought I would be able to afford one of your original paintings let alone 3. Your style has inspired me to start painting again.

Dear Leonid, I can't take my eyes of your paintings these days. Colours, your style, and the "simple" perfection in the paintings are just amazing. Even the melancholy is in life-colours and I love that. I am a jigsaw puzzle fan. I really think your paintings are one of the most suitable ones for a jigsaw puzzle, and this would spread your work to another collection of people on the World. Please consider to introduce your work to jigsaw puzzle companies like Educa, Art.. That would be so fun to make the puzzles of your work too! I am looking forward to order some of your masterpieces for my new home in the near future.. Thank you for this beautiful work. Esra Karaca, Istanbul

Let me just say that the pictures of these paintings do not do them justice. They are beyond beautiful in person. I purchased 3 last year and just purchased my 4th painting and I can't wait to hang it in my office. They are all so beautiful its hard to choose just one. I love the bright colors they are just breathtaking. I plan to purchase more in the future when I get the money and the space in my home to do so.
