about this painting:
Sweet Tango of Love
In his colorful painting, Leonid Afremov showed all the passion of Argentinean dance. For the image of the dancers he used all the brightest colors – red, yellow, orange, blue and white. The figures of the dancers merge with the background – their clothes are also painted in bright colors – thus, the man’s shirt turns from white into pink and even purple. The paint we see on his face is also of purple, pink and yellow colors, while his hands are painted only in yellow. Almost the same can be said about his partner – yellow paint fills her dark green dress with a deep neckline. By the way, the clothes of our dancers are also permeated with Argentine color and passion as the dance itself – partners are depicted in a pose classic for this dance – the man holds his left hand on the waist of his partner while his right hand is connected with his partner's left hand and they are stretched out slightly forward.
In the rhythm of Tango
Once we have already talked about tango. However, now we have a reason to dwell on this dance in more detail and tell some more interesting facts about it:
- According to one version tango appeared in the nineteenth century in the Argentine brothels. Than the dance began to enjoy immense popularity among immigrants who visited Latin America in the hope of finding their own happiness.
- The nineteenth century is remarkable for tango fans not only because the dance originated in this century. As a result of the large number of the male population and the lack of women in that historical period of time, the Argentine tango remained a couple dance, but unisex one.
- At the end of the 1930s, against the backdrop of the economic disaster, people became much less interested in the passionate Argentine dance. Further the revival of tango was prevented by the era of rock and roll. Tango did not get its former popularity soon; the dance was revived in the 80s in France.
The whole painting is permeated with passion and Argentine flavor. We hope that you will also be able to feel it with the work of one of the most famous tango artists. It will always be reminiscent of a hot South American country!
