about this painting:

RACE ON THE SNOW

Heated race, cold snow

Framed art needs an exquisite frame and a marvellous canvas. We do not know where you can find such a frame, but a sample of a skilfully painted canvas can always be found amongst Leonid Afremov’s artworks. This work is one of the examples of animalistic paintings created by the master. Those who like races, with their  ardour and intrigue, are able to appreciate the contrast between horse-racers and horses eager to win, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the cold snow trying to prevent them from galloping. The moment of the race is so vividly depicted on the canvas that, looking at it, one cannot but feel as if one was present at the race track.

Will to win

Our lives are full of battles, and these battles are won by those who are stronger and wiser, and by those who truly deserve a victory. A race is one of the most accurate metaphors for the competitive struggle of life. Here on the canvas we see five horsemen whose only desire is to be the first to finish. Their faces are indistinguishable, so that we cannot read from them the horsemen’s emotions, but the riders’ tense figures give their feelings away, and the horses look concentrated as well, with their pulled muscles and muzzles directed to the finish line. And there is one more character on this painting – the white raising snow embracing horses’ figures, making it harder for them to make their way through its freezing cloud, and yet nothing can overcome these horse-racers’ will to win, and someone’s victory is close at hand. 

Pieces of advice on frames

  1. An artwork set in a frame looks more impressive than frameless one. However, only a well-chosen frame can make a canvas look nice.
  2. A frame should become an organic part of the painting it frames. Its colour should neither contradict nor merge with the main colours of the canvas.
  3. A good framed artwork is such a work where the frame does not compete with the painting in inventiveness. A frame should be just a modest servant of the painting to which it belongs.

This fine canvas by Leonid Afremov deserves a good servant, so remember itwhenbuying this artwork.

Testimonials
I have just received the first of 3 paintings for my new home in southern Spain. Wonderful art in stunning colour that will enhance Andalucian style living.

Dear Mr Afremov, I received my painting The Loneliness of Autumn 2 weeks ago and immediately sent it in to be framed. Today I was able to finally put it up on my wall and I can't stop looking at it! It is of great significance to me for very personal reasons, and every time I look at it, I feel happy. I can't wait to buy my next painting from you!

Wow! your work is amazing! I can't even find words to describe it, so bright, so vivid, so beautiful. I absolutely love looking at it, it just makes my day to see such beauty. As an art student you are my inspiration, your work is so alive. I hope to have a collection of it some day.
