about this painting:
Old Summer House
This painting, included in the list of famous house paintings by Leonid Afremov, is called The Old Summer House. But what do we see? Bare trees, yellow foliage at their footsteps, this daytime grayness reminiscent of autumn fog - everything says that before us is not a summer but autumn landscape. In the center of the painting, we see a man on his way to the side of an old house. In his hands we see an umbrella – a clear sign that it's raining. And the path along which he walks glitters with the rain drops. The fallen yellow leaves, which have become soaked in water, have already turned into a kind of mush. The bare trees standing with straight trunks along the path ominously spread their branches; and behind them begins a dense forest enveloped in fog and autumn dampness. In the foreground we see a lantern standing alone with light flicking dimly behind the misted glass. This again indicates that low visibility caused by fog.
So, the man with an umbrella in his hands slowly walks to a lonely two-story house. The house looks old and abandoned filled with all kinds of evil spirits and ghosts. The blue light behind the locked windows, the slightly peeling walls and the roof, dimmed from the rain, do not inspire confidence, but on the contrary arouse suspicion and even fear. About what this man needs in this house we can only guess.
In any case, it seems to us that this painting will please all fans of autumn landscapes who will also be able to feel the atmosphere of puzzlement and mystery that reigns only in a few pictures by Leonid Afremov.
Haunted houses are found in all countries and around the world. Every year many thousands of explorers of paranormal phenomena and simple tourists are immersed in the eerie atmosphere of places visited by spirits. Below you will find the list of the most famous haunted houses:
- Mysterious House of Winchesters Disorderly, located in San Jose, California, USA, belonged to the widow of the arms tycoon Sarah Winchester. Numerous newspapers reported of supernatural phenomena, noticed by both guests and employees living in the house.
- Amityville House. In 1975, the Lutz family moved into a Dutch colonial house on Long Island. They left it in 28 days, leaving all their property. It turned out that a few months ago thirteen had been killed there.
- Myrt's Plantation, Louisiana, built in 1796, a B&B hotel today. The estate is one of the most famous houses in America with ghosts rumored to be home to a dozen or more ghosts.
But, let this painting not inspire you with fear but only pleases with its unusual colors. We are sure that it will perfectly suit any interior.
