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.

We are now the proud owners of 14 (!!!!) of Leonid Afremov's masterpieces. And, no, we don't own a gallery, though our home begins to look like one. Our initial order was the first time ever we ordered art on line and literally fell in love. Our newest installment of 8 masterpieces arrived yesterday and it's simply breath-taking. We bought out Leonid's Jerusalem series--all of it because the paintings are so beautiful a choice was just impossible. So we bought it all!! Sounds crazy, but it's spectacular! What an amazing talent! Leonid recreates everything! Light, air, flowers, stones, air, color, atmosphere--it's all alive and real. I smile every time I look at the pictures. No material possession has ever made me so very happy! These masterpieces literally lift your mood!!! You just can't be sad with so much beauty, color, movement and energy surrounding you. Phenomenal!!! Many thanks to the Master and his two sons, Boris and David. Leonid's remarkable genius is enhanced by his sons' acumen and superb attitude. Customer care and attention are second to none. Truly a pleasure to deal with. Customer satisfaction is job one--and it's for real, not empty words. Immediate, courteous response. Rare quality these days. We have 3 originals coming and are excited to welcome these new additions to our already amazing collection. Meanwhile, we are enjoying the beauty we already have. Trashed every other art work to liberate wall space for Leonid's masterpieces. Do yourself a favor and buy a couple of paintings! On second thought, make yourself real happy and buy a dozen! Such amazing beauty is rarely affordable. This true art is.
