about this painting:
The treasure of the Netherlands
Leonid Afremov has travelled a lot in his life. He also visited the Netherlands and its capital Amsterdam and has decided to depicture the cozy streets and channels of this city in his art.
Amsterdam is not as popular as Rome or Paris among tourists. It does not have the reputation of a romantic or gastronomic megalopolis. However, there are plenty interesting and inspiring things here as well.
A bit about Amsterdam
Amsterdam is an expensive city but if you decide to visit it, you will not be disappointed. As you can see on this Amsterdam oil painting, the cityscape is stunning. Also, it has a rich history and culture that are so different from other European countries. Here are some interesting facts about this location:
- Being located below the sea level, this city has always risked to drawn. Luckily, a dam is protecting it from this sad destiny. However, there is a legend that says that once a hole appeared in the walls of the dam. It was really small and almost unnoticeable. But it could crash the whole city. One little boy noticed it while playing and plugged with his finger. Then, he started to cry for help. Thanks to his actions, Amsterdam was saved!
- Amsterdam is one of the safest cities in Europe, but you should beware of pocket lifters. They are always a menace in popular touristic places of the city.
- Amsterdam has the most incredible museum: dedicated to the history of sex. There are also many art galleries of classical and contemporary painters.
- In the Netherlands, the curtains are either wide open all day or not present at all. Do the Dutch want to always see what is outside? Or try to bring more light into the room? Regardless of the reason, it is obvious that the Dutch are quite open about their lives. But do not try to spy on them. This is considered very impolite.
When Leonid Afremov visited this place for the first time, he felt very inspired by the harmony and peace around him. This beautiful Amsterdam painting is a gorgeous fruit of his work.
He paints the city using warm shades of chocolate brown and beige. This gives us a relaxing feeling and makes us feel safe. The city on his canvas is empty, which rarely happens during the high season. However, this way Afremov gives us the possibility to acknowledge the urban beauty to the max, without being distracted with tourists.
If you have already visited Amsterdam and would like to save this memory in your private gallery, purchase this fantastic artwork to decorate your home.
