about this painting:

Music and Wine

Music still-life

Although most of Leonid Afremov's paintings are landscapes, Music and Wine painting is likely to be attributed to still-lives. And not only on the basis of the composition but based on the meaning of the very word still-life – in  French and Italian this word consists of two words which mean “dead nature”. Thus, in this painting we see quite a large number of autumn shades – brown, orange and yellow. But in general, the palette is quite rich - in addition to the above colors the shades of turquoise and violet are distinguishable. The painting itself is made in the form of multi-colored strokes filling all its space. They make the objects hardly distinguishable.

But still the outlines of apple, violin and a glass of wine are depicted quite clearly. These three subjects make up the composition of the painting. In addition, in the background, you can see a pile of books – two thick volumes. These objects create a single semantic space and each carries a hidden meaning. Books certainly symbolize the wisdom and knowledge passing from generation to generation, violin – music and creativity, apple is a symbol of the Fall and temptation, wine is a symbol of sacrifice, it is the blood of Christ. All this is quite difficult to put together – music, creativity, sacrifice and the Fall... However, the central place in the painting is taken by the violin, which means that the musical theme prevails. Leonid Afremov wants to emphasize that it would be very difficult for all of us to live in the world without music. It is music that gives us calming, it relaxes us and distracts us from unpleasant thoughts.

The sweet forbidden fruit

As we have said the central place in the painting is taken by a violin and an apple. The interesting facts about violin and famous violinists you can find in the description for the other painting. Here we will talk about apples.  Here are the facts that may seem the most interesting to you:

  1. Native of Kazakhstan. The homeland of apples is the territory that today's Kazakhstan. its capital is absolutely rightly called Alma-Ata (Almaty), which means "the father of apples". In Almaty there is even a monument to an apple.
  2. Reference to The English word "apple” comes from the name Apollo. In ancient Greece the apple tree was considered the sacred tree of Apollo.
  3. Thousands of varieties. In the world there are more than 7,000 varieties of apples. Every year the breeders cultivate many new ones. But only a little more than a hundred varieties of apples are grown for sale. The rest are used for decorative and technical purposes. The number of seeds in an apple depends on its type.

I ordered some time ago a painting to give as a gift to my grandmother who lives in Brazil. It is so beautiful and so colorful, it gave her living room a lot of life. The shipping was fast, the painting undoubtedly a masterpiece and the service was very courteous and attentive. I definitely recommend it!!

I have always been in love with your work but I don't ever spend money on things I don't absolutely need, so when my family got me a gift card for my birthday to spend solely on the paintings I wanted from you, I took a very long time to narrow it down to the three I liked best. When I got them I was not disappointed! They are all SO amazingly beautiful and fantastic, I couldn't have imagined how wonderful these paintings are - seeing them online does not do them justice. I thank you SO much for a wonderful and unique gift and addition to my home!!
