about this painting:
The cosiness of Belorussian cities
This marvellous oil artwork by Leonid Afremov is a depiction of Vitebsk, one of the most beautiful cities in Belorussia. This city has a rich history and great architecture. It is enough to say, in order to understand how important this city is to Leonid Afremov, that Vitebsk is his hometown. The quiet streets of the magnificent city are connected with his childhood and youth, and they are the environment that produced the great master. Therefore, it is very interesting for us, who like Leonid Afremov’s paintings, to look at the charming city of Vitebsk.
The home streets
Looking at this marvellous piece of modern oil art, we see a side street in old Vitebsk. It is rainy evening. No cars are seen on the road, there is just a distant woman making her way through the gloom, with her umbrella saving her from the cold drops of rain. The yellow walls of ancient buildings fetters the road. Some of their windows are quite dark, while other windows are lit up with mysterious reddish light. You are walking along the night street and are hearing the rain drops hitting the pavement, the walls, the windows, some distant steps, some words that are being born behind the walls, inside the warm rooms where people are living their lives without knowing that you have happened to find yourself here by their windows and hear them. However, they all are unseen, and the whole city lies before you, empty, dark and naked. And every building you meet while walking along the night streets dimly alight with rare lampposts contains plenty of mysteries, of other leaves you have never touched and will never touch. And thus will you walk farther and pass unnoticed, a silent shadow hiding itself under cloud of night.
