About this painting:
The Gold of Nature
Discovering the nature in landscapes
When we talk about the genres of paintings, first of all, we think of still lifes, landscapes and portraits. What is the nature of arts? Of these three, landscapes, which occupy perhaps a separate place because it stood out in a separate genre before the others. It is not surprising because nature surrounds us everywhere and all the genial and at the same time simple ideas we took from it. What is drawing from nature? Is there a relationship between art and nature? Artists from very early times depicted natural landscapes in their paintings. In the paintings by Leonid Afremov you can find all the great variety of nature. This canvas is one of them. Definitely the artist put his soul into it. Without this, the nature painting will look lifeless and the nature on it will seem dull. Perhaps for such paintings it is difficult to recommend any particular place to hang. No matter where you hang it everywhere it will look good.
Many-sidedness of landscapes
What is the meaning of nature painting? Due to the fact that landscapes are inextricably linked with nature, the very word landscape itself has several meanings:
- Firstly, this is all that we see around us, all that surrounds us;
- Secondly, this is a way of describing nature in literature.
- This is a painting genre.
And of course landscapes are so popular that several subgenres are already highlighted in this genre – in the landscapes not only nature can be depicted but also
- Cities – these are so called cityscapes
- Landscapes can also be historical
Landscapes, as any other genre, have its own history. Thus, earlier, artists sought to depict the scenes on mythological and religious themes on canvas without paying much attention to nature. Then on canvases began to appear the images of the trees, sky, grass and all that surrounds us in reality. Of course, it was not so easy to depict all this with watercolor or acrylic paints on canvases especially for beginners. But all this can be seen in the images of Leonid Afremov. Peculiar technique makes them unique.
