about this painting:
ROMANTICISM IN THE CONTEMPORARY TIMES
Paraphrasing a famous saying, “Anything can be romantic”. We often understand it as something connected with love and relationship, thought it is not necessary.
- If you open Wikipedia, you will see that Romanticism is also an artistic movement that appeared in the 19th
- It is strongly opposed to the pragmaticism of this era, because the whole century was marked with technology and progress.
- Practical and logical minds become more important than anything. They inevitably kill in people the ability to listen to their intuition and work with emotions, unless it is educated and cultivated in people thanks to talented creators.
Leonid Afremov is one of those people who believe that useless things are, however, necessary and important if they are beautiful. It is not true that they serve for nothing. Technologies and money-making are not the only respectable activities in life, after all.
Afremov actively seeks to show people the beauty of the world. He spends a lot of time contemplating people and nature, so that later to transform this observing experience into art. His canvases teach the viewers that taking a pause and just enjoying the moment is what they really need sometimes.
On this painting, you can see a young girl holding a large red umbrella over her head. She is running shoe-less down a lonely alley, evidently happy and not caring about puddles and water splashes on her perfect white trousers.
No doubt, this painting is more a symbol than a constatation of real-life events. This joyful energetic silhouette of a young person is a crystallization of a romantic manifest. The painting is inviting to join the girl with the red umbrella in her cheerful rally.
Also, pay attention to the background. It is painted by Afremov with surprising delicacy. The dim light of street lantern looks absolutely magical, especially in combination with dark blue and purple.
The puddles add extra light to the painting, so that it does not look too dark. Even though it is night or late evening on the painting, the carefully laid-out sources of light turn it into a magical lantern, full of light and charm.
The canvas’s spell is irresistible. When you watch it in real life, you prove a strong will to come closer and touch its strokes. The fact that this artwork is so full of some mysterious energies make it a truly romantic piece.
