about this painting:


Getting back to the basics

Leonid Afremov was born in a Jewish family, and while the majority of his paintings are secular, some of them reflect his religious beliefs. One of such canvases is this shabbat painting dedicated to a long-living tradition of Jewish people.

Jewish culture

Shabbat is a Hebrew word that means "rest from work, abstain." Shabbat is a holiday rooted in the ancient history of the Jewish people. Now let us see what it means.

Where does the tradition of celebrating the Sabbath come from?

  • According to the book of Genesis it took God a week to create the world.
  • On the seventh day, he decided to rest from his labor. In Jewish culture, this day is Saturday not Sunday.
  • That is why even till today the Jews are prohibited from any manual or creative labor on Saturdays. The essence of the Sabbath, which is the last day of the week in Israel, is for people to remember God.
  • Of course, today every person makes a decision whether to follow or not to follow the ancient traditions. However, in the ancient time you could have been sentenced to death if your neighbors would report that you do not respect Sabbath.

On Afremov’s still life you can see the traditional attributes of Shabbat: vine and candles with candlesticks. The dark colors that the artist uses create an atmosphere of mystery and secrecy. This makes sense: Afremov was born in the Soviet Union where Jews were not allowed to perform their religious rites. Every Shabbat had to be made in secrecy, so that the family wouldn’t get in trouble. Even though the artist and his family have been living in Mexico for many years, he still respects his culture and maintains the Shabbat tradition.
