about this painting:
The sides of Neva
Leonid Afremov, being a native of the Soviet Union, in this painting depicted a landscape familiar to all residents of the northern capital of Russia – a bridge over one of the many small rivers of St. Petersburg. Interestingly, the city is one of the world leaders by the number of water attractions. The total length of its rivers is almost 300 kilometers. Therefore, you can be sure that floating along one of its rivers such as
you will never lose sight of natural beauty of the city.
The canvas depicts a bridge over one of these many small rivers that cross the entire city – this landscape can be called typical for St. Petersburg. But the sun in the sky doesn’t so often please the guests and residents of the city on the Neva River – the artist painted our main star slightly clouded, the sky is flooded with pink, blue and light orange colors – this is how it looks like at this time of year. Through the canvas we feel that autumn has finally come into its own and filled the city in the painting with its amazing colors. Tonight it will become even colder as well as in the following days and finally winter will come.
Coloring the grayness
Surely, many of you who know at least a few facts about this beautiful city have developed a stereotype about St. Petersburg as a gray and pale city, a city where it always rains and cold. However, at least in his canvas depicting the autumn landscape the artist managed to show the northern capital of Russia in very bright autumn colors –we find in such classic autumn colors as yellow, red orange and green – they can be seen in each autumn canvas of Leonid Afremov, colors by means of which the artist invariably creates high spirits, colors that help us forget about the dullness of everyday life, colors that warms us up on the most inclement days.
And you, the viewers of this painting, have nothing to fear because its colors will warm you at any time of the year and in any weather.
