about this painting:
Every city has a special atmosphere encrypted in its weather, architecture and people we meet. And every city leaves a trace in our memory. “Sleeping Amsterdam” by Leonid Afremov will definitely remind you of a beautiful place that you visited just once but still remember like it was yesterday or your home town where you were born and grew up. Every corner and brick here has its own story, every building is associated with people dear to your heart and every step you take leads you back to the sweet moments of the past…
Night in Amsterdam
In this colorful and luminous painting, we see a rain-washed street in the center of the night Amsterdam brightly illuminated by lanterns and shop windows. Known as the follower of the Impressionist philosophy, Leonid Afremov tends to show landscapes and cityscapes under specific weather conditions being particularly attached to sparkling rainy alleys, mysteriously lit parks and nocturnal urban views. Using quick splashy strokes of paint to capture the intricate play of light and achieve spectacular color clashes, he creates very vibrant scenes that pull the viewer inside and make you feel part of the painting - a lonely dark silhouette on the canvas, lost in this surreal and captivating world.
All of a sudden, you find yourself walking along this desolate sidewalk dotted with cozy lanterns and twinkling puddles, festive and luminous despite the gloomy sky overhead. This quiet stroll makes you calm and relaxed. All your trivial miseries and problems don’t bother you anymore. The peace in your soul is the only thing that really matters at the moment.
