The spirit of history
Looking at the canvas, you can see that the artist took the message of ‘Painting the Town Red’ literally and used a rich palette of colors to depict the view that caught his eye. The dark mirror of the road is reflecting the red lights of the night city. The rain has stopped, but the air and streets are wet. The exquisite lampposts are driving the autumn darkness away, and the windows of ancient buildings stretching themselves along the road are full of cold artificial light, bluish or yellowish. However, the buildings on the left side of the street are full of shadows, and no light can be seen behind their empty windows. Some person is making his way through the night gloom, and nothing prevents him from going farther and farther, though you do not know what is there in front of him. The thin black trunks are standing on the left side of the road, leafless and motionless, and their leafage is leaving their fragile branches and is flying upwards, so that the whole night sky is covered with the variegated mosaic of leaves still unaware of the cold ground waiting for them.
Buy this and other Leonid Afremov’s artworks and enjoy the alluring worlds born from the union of the master’s imagination and his palette knife.
