about this painting:
Сity of contrasts
Being the heart of the Netherlands where prolific history blends with the modern way of life, Amsterdam is endlessly appealing and enigmatic. This city is bursting with life. Many people come here in search of entertainment, new experiences and art jobs. There are plenty of places deserving your attention from historical sights to the weirdest spots, including gorgeous city parks, street exhibitions where local talents display the best of their art careers, beautiful churches and abbeys built centuries ago and over fifty museums. Even the pickiest city guest will find a spot to admire. If you every happen to visit Amsterdam, don’t miss your chance to check out these places:
1. Fascinating old buildings
2. Museum of Van Gogh
3. The Dam Square in the city center
4. Hash Marihuana Museum
5. Charming Amsterdam canals
No wonder this controversial city, amazingly vibrant and irresistibly attractive, is often depicted by Leonid Afremov in his own peculiar manner. And this painting is no exception.
The artist shows us only a tiny part of this enormous city with such tender and awe that even a fleeting look at this canvas makes you feel the entire beauty and magnetism of Amsterdam. The curiously shaped buildings are gleaming cozily in the darkness and their numerous windows are reflected in the stillness of the canal water. We can see an old bridge arching its back over the canal and the yellow glow of the street lamps that fills the picture with warmth and beauty. The sky puts on a nocturnal mackintosh and pensiveness covers Amsterdam like a magic blanket. Everything becomes so quiet, so still and motionless. Reverie is in the air. And each imperceptible particle becomes thoughtful and sophisticated.
Find peace in art
Apparently, "Pensive Amsterdam" is a unique and beautiful painting that requires a particular regard. This sample of true mastery will adorn even the most unpretentious place and add a pinch of refinement to a luxurious mansion. If you seek calmness, relaxation and harmony after a difficult working day, this very canvas depicting a quite city block in pensive Amsterdam is your remedy. Hang the picture on your wall, curl up on the sofa or nestle in your favorite armchair and get lost in contemplation!
