about this painting:
REFLECTIONS OF THE PAST
Soul of the city
Just like us, humans, each city has its own personality. Some of them are young and perky, eager to expand and evolve. Longing for action, they put their bubbling energy into rearing head-spinning high-rise apartments, fuelling thousands of neon lights and pumping endless streams of cars and people up and down their noisy streets. Others are much older, quieter and wiser. Having survived through the turbulence of wars, plague and rage of nature, they know the value of time. They strike their roots deep into the ground on which they were built centuries ago and lead a simple unhurried life saving their strength for future generations. Walking down their cobbled streets and admiring the whimsical frontons, spires and bas-reliefs, you can feel how much they could have told. This picture will take you to the times when there was no photography to capture the beauty of this scenery on tape and you could only admire it with your own eyes - or through the prism of painting styles and techniques aptly employed by a talented hand.
A trip back in time
Among all painting styles of the 20th century, Impressionism is one of the most spectacular and emotional. Using bright oils and quick vivid strokes, Leonid Afremov depicted a peaceful and romantic evening on the river bank. Twinkling enigmatically in the soft blue twilight, the still water surface greets you with myriads of colorful reflections. The trees rustle quietly with their green tops emitting a rich odor of pine and resin that pleasantly tickles your nose. Weaving between them, the path leads to a cracked mossy bridge, so archaic that it still carries the imprints of horse shoes and carriage wheels that used to rumble down its stone back when you weren’t even born. You set foot on its solid surface and stop in your tracks astonished by the view that opens in the distance. Wrapped in a sparkly haze, the age-old buildings rise solemnly into the starry sky, magnificent and unreal like a magical vision. Keep it shining on your wall and relish its graceful charm every instant by decorating your room with this amazing cityscape!
