NIGHT IN NEW-YORK
The city that never sleeps: New York
Night in New-York never looks like night. There is so much illumination in this fantastic city and crowds of people even at night that it is hard to imagine empty streets of this city. This metropolis can be empty only in the films of post-Armageddon period. Now it is full of life and vigor! If anything can present link fine art paintings, this should be New York!
We see multicolored depiction of the city – not a central area, otherwise there would be more people out. They walk in the rain and enjoy the beauty of the night city.
Main feature of Impressionism
Speaking about Leonid Afremov, we can cover one of the fine art success stories. He applies bold technique of painting to portray the cityscape. His canvas art is not realistic, and though we can recognize some famous landmarks in his artworks this was not the priority. Afremov presents the form but skips the details and realism of portrayal, not because he is not accurate but he sets different goals. He tries to reflect the atmosphere on the painting, and this is the main feature in impressionism. You can feel the tension in the air or lightness of relaxation as you look at his canvases.
