about this painting:
WHITE AND ROSE PERFECTION
Flowers are probably one of the best gifts that you can give to someone. It is true that they are not particularly useful in real life, however, they look and smell so wonderfully!
Do you know that there is a whole language of flowers invented? Depending on the kind of flowers and their color, you can say different things to the person you are giving these flowers to!
- Roses are clearly a sign of passion and love. However, the darker the color is, the less platonic are your feelings. At the same time, white roses symbolize innocence and distant adoration.
- Lilies are symbols of many royal families all over the world, French royal family included. So, that is why they cannot be associated or connected in any way with something impure. By giving somebody lilies, you express the most innocent and profound feelings that a person can ever have towards another person.
- Orchid is a luxurious flower, that is often presented to people of high social status. Women that prefer to receive this flower as a gift are passionate but also powerful and bossy.
- Peonies are symbols of rich happy life. This flower is not as passionate and intimate as other two, so you can present it as a gift to practically anyone. Peonies are much less formal and obliging than roses and lilies.
Leonid Afremov is recognized all over the world as a talented postimpressionist who better than anyone knows how to paint urban sceneries as well as tender still lives with peonies. He feels the beauty of the world around him, lets it pass through him and then transfers it on canvas.
What a simple still life can say? It is not a battle scene or a portrait. Flowers can so easily seem indifferent and empty of any meaning…
This is not true at all! Even a still life has an atmosphere around it. Look at this peonies still life by a famous artist. What does it say to you? Is it sad and tragic or, on the other hand, harmonious and stabilizing? What about its color palette? Warm or cold? Refreshing or warming?
The potential of still lives as a genre nowadays lies here. It can be perceived differently by different people, as well as any other piece of art. However, it leaves much more freedom of interpretation to the viewer, since there is no action, no clues to the meaning.
While looking at a still life try to think of what the artist was thinking at that moment and what motivated him to paint this bouquet or this vase. Little details can give away the artist’s mood that day. Probably, he was trying to calm down after a stressful situation? Or maybe he was feeling excited and happy?
