about this painting:


Afremov is a big fan of European capitals. He depicted so many of them, as well as just large and famous cities like Venice. Centuries ago Venice was a center of a great marine empire but now it is just one of many tourists’ attractions in Italy. However, the moon paintings of it can have more value than you would expect.

As a matter of fact, the city is dying. Because of large people flows it is drowning and there is no way to stop it. Most likely, within the next 50 years, it will be completely immersed into the city.

While it is an extremely sad fact, of course, it also means that all the images of it, especially the artistic ones will rise in cost. Everybody will be interested to see what the ancient city used to look like. And you will be a proud owner of one of the samples of Venice art collection by famous artists.

Magic of full moon

What do you think when you look at this painting for the first time?

The moon is so pretty in the sky, but for some reason it is considered potentially dangerous by some people. While half-moon does not provoke any negativity, full moon is considered unlucky.

  • Our ancestors used to hunt according to the periods of full or crescent Nowadays gardeners plant and harvest in accordance with the moon phases schedule. Every living creature does depend on this celestial body, some more some less.
  • Full moon is associated with insanity and insomnia in folklore and traditions. It can provoke anxiety and discomfort to mentally unstable people; however, in itself it is completely harmful.
  • Full moon is a magical phenomenon. Full moon influences the behaviour of people. Many medical experts studied the problem. Full moon, for instance, triggers more aggressive behaviour in animals.

Anyway, this canvas with the brightly shining moon over the city does not cause any unpleasant thoughts or anxiety. It looks like a huge warming lantern in the sky making the medieval cathedral and other buildings shine in its light. Afremov applies drastic contrasts and warm shades of blue, red and yellow to transform the night from being something terrifying and mysterious into a familiar and friendly environment on canvas.

It is a summer night on the painting. Summer is Italy is the time when all the Italians are leaving the cities and going abroad or to small towns and villages near the sea to unwind. At the same time, incredible amounts of tourists arrive to enjoy the treasures of Italian architecture and food to cities like Venice, Rome and Florence.

There is no need for you to go through that expensive and crowd-likely experience. Easy to purchase one of the original piece of art by a famous artist Leonid Afremov and avoid the fuss.
