about this painting:

CAFE IN PARIS

Silent corner in the old city

Paris is a city of love, wine and small cafes. Some of the cafes have become famous, and one of them is "L'Entracte." The name is not accidental: the windows of the cafe are facing the Opera House. Moreover, enjoying coffee or a light snack is a sort of "intermission" in our daily life.

Wonderful artwork "CAFE IN PARIS" is another story which took place in Paris. This is one of those paintings that are so exciting to study - it depicts people, and it is always interesting to observe people!

The artist brilliantly depicts the figures of visitors. Frozen life on the painting revives:

  • two fingers resettle a pair of sunglasses;
  • a hand brings a cup of coffee to a mouth;
  • we can hear the rhythmic tapping of the waitress`s heals;
  • from the windows of the café, we can smell the aroma of fresh baking.

 

Favorite cafe

The composition of the painting is very interesting. The cityscape brings peace and comfort, just like other artist`s paintings. The viewer can see several visitors and a waitress. One couple is busy studying a magazine or newspaper, a young girl on the right (perhaps, a student) is reading something, the other two couples are looking at some object.

Perhaps they are looking at a young French woman who left a wonderful smell of perfume behind her at Grand Opera Palais Garnier. Or maybe they are watching a magician`s show or a street performance of a young talented musician.

We can see the facade of the cafe behind the backs of the visitors. The surprising fact is that there is no clear image of doors, windows and interior of the cafe. However, the play of strokes delivers the missing image to our subconsciousness. The only clear spot on the background is a menu in a frame.

The "handwriting" of the artist, his talent give him the ability to express the essence of things in every single brush stroke without resorting to common forms. The viewer has to appeal to his fantasy to picture omitted details - and it intensifies the pleasure of contemplation!

Another difference from most other paintings by Leonid Afremov is the unusual colors displayed on the canvas. Here we can’t see a motley play of yellow, orange and red colors, the shades of the painting are very calm. The painting shows us a quiet noon in Paris. You should also pay attention to the roof of the cafe. Its color and font add something truly theatrical to the atmosphere of the picture.

Testimonials
Your paintings are a real inspiration to me. I first came across your work on DeviantART and was entranced. As someone who suffers from severe depression, the color and life in your paintings transfers to me when it seems I need it most. keep up the wonderful work I look forward to purchasing many more in the future!

This was a wonderful experience for me and I am definitely planning to purchase more in the future. I purchased a Misty Mood painting, which was wonderful except an incredibly small flaw. I emailed them, and within a couple hours they offered to send me a replacement or a completely new painting at no cost. I chose to have a new one sent to me and within a week it arrived at my apt. Truly great service to accompany such wonderful paintings.
