about this painting:
Portofino – Liguria, Italy
The Italian fire
In Portofino – Liguria, this truly Italian painting by Leonid Afremov you will find all the things with which you associate this amazing country – the cradle of European civilization. Appropriately to a southern country, it is rich in colors as it is shown in the painting – the houses standing on the canal bank are all as one painted in bright southern colors – purple, orange, yellow, red, burgundy, blue and some shades of brown are also visible. These colors emphasize the image of the sky even more – it is literally strewn with multi-colored brush strokes and we see even more colors on it –blue, turquoise and white are added to those already mentioned. Behind the houses you can see the tops of the hills that look, let us say, the most faded compared with the other elements of the painting. And among them it is impossible not to distinguish the sea surface on which the yachts stand. It also reflects the light of city lanterns that literally ignites it.
Once in Portofino
We very much hope that this canvas will inspire you to make a trip to this Italian town and therefore we have prepared for you a short list of tasks that you must complete upon arrival:
- First, you need not to come to Portofino, but to sail, because only from the water you can see the world famous harbor in all its glory: tiny, but unusually picturesque, with colorful houses and fishing boats in contrast with luxury yachts.
- Descending from the ship, in Portofino, you immediately, as they say, get to the ball! On Piazzetta Square, you must take a photo, once again sigh at the luxury yachts, look at the faces of passersby: maybe you’ll be lucky and see George Clooney slowly passing you with his new passion!
- Looking around, you will immediately notice all the main attractions of Portofino (of which there are very few, because you are in the village and not in the megalopolis!): Brown Castle on a green hill just above the harbor, the yellow crown of St. George's Church next to it, the clock tower of the Divo Martino Church right behind Piazzetta. In addition, on the right side of Piazzetta, right by the port (Marina di Portofino), there is a park-museum with amusing sculptures.
It seems to us that you will get the most pleasant feeling from this painting. In case of purchase, it will fill your home with Italian colors that will always create a southern atmosphere.
