about this painting:

Studying Bible

Philosophical reflections

Probably there is no book in the world better known than the Bible. Of course, it has been always attracting the attention of many artists – writers, poets and painters. Leonid Afremov also chose the Biblical subject for all of his painting. For him, this book is a means of uniting people of different confessions – in the end we should not forget that different religions have many similarities. We will not go into details here, but only confine ourselves to vague generalities.

 Let's look carefully at people studying the Bible in the painting – these are clearly people of different confessions – on the head of the man standing at the left we see a skullcap, besides he is dressed in dark Muslim clothes, it's hard to say of what exactly consists his attire. The gentleman standing in the middle apparently is not an adherent of any religion, he is dressed quite secularly - he has a bowler hat on his head, a usual headdress of men in the 19th century, we also see a jacket and shirt on him – also classic clothes for the urban intelligentsia, the man on the right is obviously a Jew – his colorful appearance is also embellished by the clothes, namely the headdress – a pile.

The plot of the painting can be called utopian - you could hardly witness such a scene at that time. And it's not even about confrontations between different religions and confessional disputes, but it’s about the likelihood of meeting such people under similar circumstances. But still the artist tried to add such features to his painting that can attract the attention of even people who are distant from art! You can hardly find anything better among famous Bible paintings!

Holy Book

We present to your attention 3 most interesting facts about the Bible. You may already know some of them, but something will surely be a real discovery for you!

  1. The longest name of all those found in the Bible is the Mahar-shalal-hash-baz. The Lord told the prophet Isaiah to give to his son, born of the prophetess, namely this name. It means "fast in catch" and "fast in execution"
  2. The most frequently mentioned people in the Bible are Jesus, David who takes the second place is mentioned 1118 times; then comes Sarah, the wife of Abraham, she takes the first place among women - her name is mentioned 56 times.
  3. How many letters and words are there in the Bible? The Bible is a rather large book, containing about 3.5 million letters. The number of words varies between 773692 and 773746, because they can be counted by different ways.

Testimonials
Your art is amazing. I'm not an art specialist but it's incredible heart touching!!! Love it!!!

Beautiful. Received the painting today. Have brought it from opening room (kitchen) to living room, to bedroom, because I am filled with serene joy every time I gaze there. Do not know which room this gorgeous, tranquil, refreshing and calming painting will rest in. Do know I will buy another. I am so glad to have discovered the art of Leonid Afremov. Inner peace and subtle joy fill me when I look at 'Loneliness of Autumn'. I'm saving for my next purchase, my next gift of joy to self.

Acabo de comprar mi primera obra de Afremov (Farewell to Anger) y pienso que no sera la única. Estoy sumamente encantada con el trabajo de este gran artista y el efecto de alegría que producen en mi, sus coloridas obras. Exitos Leonid!!
