about this painting:



Endless beauty

Covered with green woods and cloaked in noble legends, France has always inspired poets and artists with its captivating charm. The country of beauty and romance, it breaks your usual routine and opens a door to a new world full of bright colors and jolly emotions. The moment you set foot on its glorified ground, breathe in its gentle air and taste your first croissant in one of its cute coffee shops, this invariable attribute of the French lifestyle, you know that it won’t let you go. Being an avid traveler, Leonid Afremov often visits France in search of new sceneries for his famous cityscapes. You may have seen him walking down a rain-soaked street wrapped in his mackintosh at dusk or propping up his easel at the pier to capture the fiery shades of the sunset Seine. This time his route led him to the magnificent city of Rouen lying in the heart of Normandy, home to some of the most picturesque landscapes and fascinating sights in the whole France.

Things to admire in Rouen:

  • The Notre Dame cathedral we all know from the book.
  • The Gros Horloge astronomic clock built in the 16th century.
  • Rouen Castle where Joan of Arc was held captive.
  • The art museum featuring paintings by Monet and Gericault.
  • The Jardin des Plantes botanical garden dating back to 1840.
  • The modern church of Saint Joan of Arc.

Night scenery

Demonstrating spectacular oil painting techniques, Leonid Afremov depicted the night Rouen caught in the vigorous downpour. The street is dark and desolate, but it doesn’t look gloomy. Illuminated by the bright colors of the houses and the shiny reflections on the wet asphalt, it invites you to leave your shelter and venture outside into this whirlpool of colorful sparkles. Everything is so luminous and festive that you seem to be dreaming. But the icy trickle of water shaken off by a freshly washed tree, its branches stirring quietly in their green sleep, snaps you out of reverie telling you it’s all for real. Saturated oil paints, unusual stroke arrangement and rich texture make this artwork truly beautiful, worthy of hanging at any home. Fill your place with color and warmth by trimming it up with a couple of Leonid Afremov paintings!
