about this painting:


Cat band


The painting of Leonid Afremov with the name Musical Cats is included in the list of his famous paintings composing the series of his art works with the topic of cats, it is also included in the cycle of his paintings on a musical theme. The painting has the features typical for the artist: motley colors, the background of the picture are made in the form of smears, and, of course, the cat theme is one of the artist's favorite themes. The artist suggests that you enjoy the music of the professional jazz band dated about the beginning of the 20th century, with only one difference from the usual format - the musicians of this band are cats, the real masters, go-to guys. The time we can determine on the basis of how the musicians are dressed - the one that is on the left is dressed in a suit, classic for the early 20th century, As  well as all his clothes say that he is from this time -  bowler, vest, waistcoat, his two colleagues that are on the right from him – a violinist and a harmonist, respectively – are dressed similarly. The violinist is also dressed in a suit, with the only difference – the legs of his trouser are shortened for some reason in his paws, he holds the violin and bow, his comrade on the right is dressed in a light suit and in a light felt hat. And in his mouth we see a tobacco pipe - also an inseparable accessory of an American gentleman of the beginning of the 20th century. He sits on a stool. Finally, the forth musician is dressed in a coat and a hat, too, we see a bow on his neck. All the four musicians compose a single band – they are dressed in the same style, as we found out. But Leonid afremov tried to portray the musician so that we think that although they are professionals, they earn a little. The look like street musicians, we can conclude that from the fact that their clothes are worn, and they do not even have shoes at all. But nevertheless it is hoped that their professionalism and skills, as well as their passion for work, one day will make them rich.

I've just discovered your art and it is truly amazing. You envision the world in all of these phenomenal colors and feelings. I wish I could see or feel these. I will hopefully one day be able to buy a piece of your work. Until then I will try and find a print. Anyway I just wanted to say thank you for showing me the world from a more hopeful and fantastic view. Wishing you all the best for a Merry Christmas and a wicked new year!

I would like to say, that these paintings are amazing. I ordered the "John Lennon" portrait for my parents and they love it. I finally ordered one for myself, "summer scent", which I also got, "Brown Bridge", free. They just arrived today and are exceptionally beautiful. If anyone is ever skeptical about the price or quality, just read the reviews. Leonid is amazing.
