About this painting:
Paris of my dreams
Ideal object for art
Why is Leonid Afremov's Paris painting called Paris of my Dreams? In our opinion, everything is definite and obvious – the dream of everyone who wants to visit Paris for the first time is to see the Eiffel Tower. It attracts tourists from all over the world as a hallmark of the city. It is certainly included in the list of the most visited attractions in the world and is a subject of not only tourists’ interest but also of people of art, including artists who seek to capture it on their canvases.
The most famous attraction
Today, the French in general and Parisians in particular are proud of their hallmark, surprisingly, but at first the Parisians did not like the tower at all. Here are some more interesting facts about the tower:
- At first Parisians considered the tower completely unsuitable for their city, which at that time was very beautiful. But as history has shown, this architectural object has become a real tourist Initially, it was not planned at all that the Eiffel Tower would remain in Paris forever. It was planned as a prefabricated temporary structure, which was supposed to glorify the French design genius. The grandiose building was built specifically for the World Exhibition, which was held in Paris in 1889. The tower was the gateway to the exhibition. The French wanted to show that the usual gate to the exhibition could astonish the entire planet, because at that time the Eiffel Tower was the tallest building in the world.
- Copies and images of the legendary building are printed in millions of copies, and there are practically no people left in the world who do not know how the creation of the architect Eiffel looks like but surprisingly, many of those born in Paris have never visited the Eiffel Tower, like many Muscovites have never been to the Kremlin or the Lenin Mausoleum on Red Square or Londoners to Big Ben.
- However, the French authorities did not take into account that they might encounter problems in the construction of the tower. The protests began already at the moment when the government made the final choice, rejecting several candidates and focusing on the project of the famous engineer and architect Gustave Eiffel. They liked the tall metal tower, supported by four huge "legs."
In love with Paris
Look what colors the artist used on his canvas – you can say with confidence that this painting belongs to a man who is in love with the city. He knows it almost by heart and wants to show us it from the best side – for this he uses his already tested arsenal – bright colors. In his opinion, Paris is a city of luxury and simplicity, because on the one hand you can find quite expensive and pathos cafes in some quarters, and in other quarters, where there are few tourists, people live modestly and are content with small restaurants. The French symbol in the painting by Leonid Afremov is certainly his declaration of love to Paris, love that he does not hesitate to express using bright colors. Probably such a monumental structure makes a definite impression on everyone, but he is an artist and the artist’s task is to show his impression to everyone else. The Eiffel Tower in this painting by the artist can be compared with a bright candle that illuminates the whole city. We want it to also illuminate your home. To do this, you just need to purchase it on the site at a very good price.
