The unforgettable city
Being a very romantic person himself and one of the most notable abstract artists of nowadays, Leonid Afremov couldn’t help but paint the most romantic place on Earth, Paris, with its one of the most famous sights the Arc de Triomphe. The capital of France is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and this exquisite sample of fine modern art proves it once again. If you never been to Paris, this is your chance to visit it – if not in person, then through the power of art. One can talk on and on about this magnificent city, but there is only one way to learn what Paris is and that is to see it with your own eyes, even though it is just painted on the canvas. It’s hard to enumerate all poets, artists and singers who immortalized Paris in their works. Many centuries have passed and each left its own trace on the face of Paris. But it remains just as beautiful and romantic as it used to be hundreds of years before. Now age-old buildings, castles and churches coexist with modern high-rise apartments in a mesmerizing harmony that can’t leave anyone indifferent. At night it looks especially fascinating. Ernest Hemmingway’s famous words that Paris is a moveable feast also sprang to his mind after having seen Paris at night.
The magic of light and color
In the painting, you see a line of trees on both sides of the busy road leading to the Arc. Their crowns are illuminated by bright lights that blink and shimmer in the foliage. Together with the city lamps they make the paining look very luminous and festive. The seemingly millions of stars shining brilliantly and blanketing the night heavens are further accentuated in the abstract-style deep blue sky spread over the prospect. We can compare Paris with an unreal woman who changes its light afternoon dress to a convivial evening dress. And yet, it always looks amazing. You can almost become intoxicated by the Champaign aroma that will be impossible to forget once you smell it. A never-ending stream of cars resembles a flowing river, with a whirlpool around the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde that burns like a giant golden gate in the darkness. The road underneath dozens of wheels glows as well reflecting the dance of lights overhead. This fine example of abstract art for sale is a living image of the magical city lying halfway across the world.
Paris as we know it
Paris wouldn’t have been the capital of France if it hadn’t been teeming with tourists eager to visit local sights. The painting depicts the city at night when it sparks with myriads of neons and explodes with life in its numerous clubs and casinos. But during the day there are a lot of interesting things to do in Paris as well:
- Visit Art galleries that have interesting exhibitions of abstract art.
- Enjoy your morning coffee with a crispy, freshly-baked croissant or a glass of wine in one of the fancy restaurants of Paris with a gourmet dishes.
- Catch a bird’s-eye view of the city from high atop the Eiffel Tower, the symbol and main attraction of Paris.
- Spend hours feeling the history of the world wash over you while walking the corridors of the Louvre.
- Encounter some of your most beloved Walt Disney characters in Disneyland Paris.
- Explore the haunting ossuaries in the Catacombs of Paris, home to about six million human remains.
