about this painting:

Passion and Fire

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Is the ballet out of date?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.

More than just a dance

If you are acquainted with ballet only by hearsay, then for sure these interesting facts about this remarkable art form that we have gathered specially for you will heighten your interest in this phenomenon in art:

  1. The ballet was born in the 15th century in Italy, and the very word “ballo”, meaning “dance”, is Italian. However, it developed mainly in France, King Louis XIV, a former passionate dancer, in 1661, opened in Paris, the first European Dance Academy.
  2. To sew a ballet tutu, it takes about 13-16 meters of tulle and 2 days of work.
  3. A man dancing in a ballet hoists in every performance not less than a ton, that is, he hoists the ballerina about 200 times.
  4. One of the most acute forms of ballet humiliation is a broom wrapped in a newspaper. It is thrown on the stage instead of a bouquet.
  5. Outstanding ballerina Olga Lepeshinskaya broke her leg during a performance. The crackling was so loud that even the audience in the hall could hear it. But the ballerina heroically finished the dance.

I purchased an original oil painting from Leonid through; specifically the painting entitled "Under the Umbrella." My wife and I are so impressed with the painting; it completely lights up our house. Thank you Leonid!

Have bought 3 master works. All have pride of place in my house, may visitors claim about how beautiful they are. I ordered one, but it was not what I liked, so I sent it back and got another one. No fuss, really fast and polite and quick and just lovely. I ordered another one, and even was able to get a small custom detail on it. It is just beautiful. Thankyou so much, they bring warmth to my heart!

Dear Mr Afremov, I received my painting The Loneliness of Autumn 2 weeks ago and immediately sent it in to be framed. Today I was able to finally put it up on my wall and I can't stop looking at it! It is of great significance to me for very personal reasons, and every time I look at it, I feel happy. I can't wait to buy my next painting from you!
