about this painting:
Music and Flowers
All the beauty of the world
One of the famous oil paintings of flowers by Leonid Afremov can be attributed to still lives because on it we see an amazing combination of colors and music – in the center of the composition is a large vase with magnificent colors and a double bass. From an elongated neck stretches a magnificent bouquet of flowers of different colors – yellow, red, orange and even violet – these colors are in perfect match with the background of the canvas on which brown shades prevail. It is quite difficult to determine the type of flowers – from a distance they resemble small branches with colored leaves. We clearly see their thin trunks with colorful petals. Below we see a fruit resembling a melon or a pumpkin. Combining with the brown color of the background, it enhances the autumn mood of the painting. In addition, beneath we see some fallen petals or leaves, from which it will be possible to compose a beautiful herbarium.
Capturing the beauty
Indeed, the beauty of autumn leaves can be captured by making a herbarium of them. Here we will not teach you how to make up the herbarium correctly. We hope that you learned how to make it as children. We will only tell you some interesting facts about this kind of art:
- You may be surprised but the first herbarium was made not for the scientific purpose of the collection, but for romantic one. The fact is that herbariums were a kind of signs of affection. A beautiful flower presented should be dried, in this manner only it could save the memory about a dear person.
- In the 15th century, books about plants began to appear. They combine facts with myths and legends. Photos were not yet invented. Therefore, herbariums were made with the help of more or less accurate drawings, on which it was sometimes difficult to identify a particular plant.
- Scientific works with examples of glued dried plant parts suddenly began to appear in the middle of the 16th
Enjoy the amazing canvas by Leonid Afremov which combines both summer and autumn colors at the same time!
