about this painting:
Capturing history in color
Have you ever been to Prague, the heart of the Czech Republic and one of the oldest European capitals? Have you ever wandered its old districts with their curiously shaped buildings standing unchanged for many generations, graceful lampposts forged in the last century and funny trams slowly crawling along the railway just like they used to decades ago? If not, the beautiful cityscapes by Leonid Afremov give you a chance to seesome of the most spectacular and charming parts of Prague with his eyes.
Prague as we love it
Producing colorful and inspiring art on canvas, this talented and imaginative artist always manages to convey a unique atmosphere of each citythrough the ample use of color and light. Under his skillful brush, a common scene we wouldn’t even pay attention to in everyday life turns into something worth of contemplating. On this particular picture, we see a corner of an old Prague street striking the eye with its peculiar architecture and other marks of history. The cityscape is painted rather distinctly, with fine strokes of paint laid neatly next to each other. We can clearly discern the sophisticated balcony railing decorating the house in the background, itsunusual roof shape and the details of the lantern design. At the same time, the painting looks somewhat blurred by the rain, with colorfulreflections dancing on the wet asphalt and the pale misty sky descending over the city in the background. Altogether, it creates a strange mix of feelings in the viewer, some delicate sort of delightful melancholy that makes art so appealing and profound.
What are some things Prague is famous for?
So let’s embark on the old tram running through the picture that will take us on a tour across the best parts of the Czech capital. Where should we go first?
