about this painting:
The Entrance to Amsterdam
Old European city centers have a special charm to it. Once you step to the paving stones of Paris, Rome or Barcelona, you seem to immerse in the past. Super modern cars, cafes and nightclubs should be ignored if you want to really explore the local culture. Like on this Amsterdam painting by a famous artist.
Holland culture revealed
Do you know much about the Netherlands? Being quite a popular tourist destination for tourists from the European Union, it is still quite often ignored by Americans and Australians. They choose London and Milan over Amsterdam… and make a huge mistake!
On this painting by Leonid Afremov, you can see some unique Holland culture traits that you will not see elsewhere. For example:
- Land costs a lot in Amsterdam, so some people… just live on their boats! These boats are large and comfortable, also - every morning different view.
- Amsterdam architecture seems to have a lot in common with the German one. However, it is not exactly true. If you carefully study and explore the city center, you will see a lot of similarities.
- The street on the painting looks perfect for opening a small cafe or a typical restaurant. Among things to try in Amsterdam are: cheese, stroopwafels, freshly salted herring and more.
Leonid Afremov - famous post-impressionist visited Amsterdam more than once. He always found this city friendly and unique, and has managed to transfer this spirit onto canvas.
Amsterdam in oil
The capital of the Netherlands on the Afremov’s painting doesn’t look like a typical one at all. We are used to believe that the capital is a busy city with international corporations, rich nightlife and expensive goods.
On this canvas, we do not see any of it. On the contrary, the city is empty and quiet as if it was a small town on the periphery on the Eastern Europe.
Afremos utilises tender colors and short pointy strokes to represent a star-lit sky.
