Past to Heaven
Leonid Afremov is remembered to us primarily by the abundance of colors and shades on his canvases. On them, he always depicted the most joyful moments in the life of every person, made us believe that positive emotions can be found even in the most insignificant moments in life, such as a walk in the park or caressing pets. By the way, among animals Leonid Afremov most of all liked to draw cats, he depicted them in combination with his other favorite theme – music. In his paintings you can see jazz bands that are entirely composed of cats. The artist was very fond of traveling and in his paintings he depicted all corners of the world which he visited. Its Italian landscapes are very rich in colors, in them you can find images of the most famous Italian cities with their unique sights – gondolas, narrow streets. As for the image of other countries and cities, here we can highlight Spain with its bullfighting. This spectacle caused the artist special pleasure and he often captured it in his paintings. But all of his paintings, whether city landscapes, park scenes or other natural landscapes, are permeated with romance and love. On them we find real feelings and the most sincere emotions that only a person is capable of. The artist depicted love in different ways. It could be both erotic scenes and quite airy romantic scenes of kisses in the rain.
Like many famous people, the artist foresaw his death. And this insight became a reason for him to create a painting, which he called Past to Heaven. In the painting he depicted the people illuminated by the heaven light. He wanted to believe in miracle and he believed in it! The painting was finished a week before his death. He did not even have time to sign it. This oil painting will never be sold.
But We have prepared something else for Afremov's collectors.. We would like to present hand painted oil paintings on canvas. These paintings were finished by Leonid Afremov himself with the help of his best studio artists to do pencil drawing and basic background. These paintings come signed by Leonid Afremov himself on the front and the back. They also come with a certificate of authenticity signed by Leonid Afremov himself. These artworks are made almost identical to the original images that you see online.
