about this painting:
The old train of Leonid Afremov takes us to our childhood, to the world of our fantasies and dreams! See what vivid colors the artist used! The train oil painting contains a wide variety of shades – yellow, pink, red, purple, and many others. In all these colors, we guess the artist’s favorite season – autumn. That is, a fabulous train rushes out of the forest as if from our childhood. Unfortunately, these trains can no longer be found on the railways, they exist only in museums, but thanks to Leonid Afremov’s work and other train oil paintings they come to life reviving our fantasies. It is quite difficult to determine the country, in which such a train could be found. It is very stereotyped and reminds us of old trains from different eras and from different countries. Look at the smoke coming from the chimney of this machine and you will immediately remember a shot from a movie.
Locomotive from the history
Trains ... trains ... Think about this number: 1.3 billion people use rail services every year. But trains are not only about numbers and routes, statistics and ticket prices, there are a huge number of interesting facts that you simply probably never knew about, but it would not be superfluous to hear about them one more time. We hasten to share them with you:
- In 1804, a native of England, Richard Trevitik invented the first train with locomotive traction and a passenger car. But he didn’t cause anything but smiles on the faces of the audience. Simply nobody dared to enter it.
- The epic of passenger main trains began on September 15, 1830, when a train departed from Liverpool to Manchester to transport not only the bolder passengers, but also the world's first mail car.
- For three days, the first train in Russia, connecting Moscow and Petersburg, shuttled for free. The “terrible thing” scared potential passengers so much that they tried to stand aloof.
- In 1830, in England was arranged a stunning competition between five steam locomotives. Unfortunately, one of the participants cheated and hid live horses under the metal casing. Don’t worry! He was worn off. Not a single horse was harmed.
So this painting will always remind you of your childhood – for sure, many boys had such toy trains. The female half of the audience will also have something to remember –train paintings are so romantic!
