about this painting:
Passion and Fire
The beauty of the ballet
Is ballet out of date?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. But its passion and fire can never become obsolete.
Amazing work of art
This oil canvas by Leonid Afremov helps us understand all the charm of ballet. The artist yields to demonstrate the true nature of this dance. It is not only about the technique and years of practice but also about the sole of the dancer and their emotions.
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.
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:
- 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.
- To sew a ballet tutu, it takes about 13-16 meters of tulle and 2 days of work.
- A man dancing in a ballet hoists in every performance not less than a ton, that is, he hoists the ballerina about 200 times.
- 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.
