The beauty of the ballet
Is the ballet out of date? It is hard to say. Everyone at least once in his life was at a ballet performance. But for most of us the acquaintance with the ballet ends with this one meeting. It’s not surprising because ballet requires attention, understanding, desire to see and perceive all its beauty. And a few of us can concentrate on it. Yes, ballet is not for everyone. But its beauty, plasticity, grace can never become obsolete.
The Passion and Fire painting of Leonid Afremov just help us to comprehend all the beauty and grace of this stunning art form. In his paintings the ballet begins to play with new colors. The artist tries to turn it from mere art into entertainment for the populace. In his paintings, such as this one, he shows all the grace and elegance of this dance. Filling each of his paintings with a rich palette of colors, he invariably creates an upbeat mood and the ballet ceases to be associated only with academism and constant drilling, instead we see a real dance such as tango or foxtrot – very entertaining and even dynamic to some extent. The artist manages to depict even the finest motions with amazing accuracy. In this painting, we see how the clothes of the dancer, as it were, repeat her movements: the sleeves and hem of her dress stream driven by the ballerina’s graceful pa.
We sincerely hope that thanks to such paintings by Leonid Afremov as Passion and Fire, depicting ballet in the most colorful way, you will become interested in ballet and become a regular spectator at ballet performances in the theater.
