about this painting:
THE STREETS AT NIGHT
A change of scene
A few centuries ago, a good painting was supposed to precisely repeat the original. If it was a landscape, it had to be an exact copy of the view that inspired the artist. If it was a portrait, it had to be very realistic to pass the strict artistic standards of those times. Now we have a quite different perception of art. Here, in the online gallery of Leonid Afremov, you’ll find plenty of great works that will catch your eye with their color palette and painting style without resembling a ‘painted photo.’ We recommend you to start with this charming city view!
The magic of night
At night, the world goes through a magical transformation. Streets and buildings lose their outlines, shapes grow blurred and colors fade. All sounds of the day die out. In this realm of silence and twilight, everything seems mysterious and full of hidden meaning. Trying to capture the subtle magic of night, Leonid Afremov painted a sleeping street basking in soft lantern light. It’s a late hour, but the canvas is full of tiny light sources that scatter the darkness. A lonely streetlamp, a vigilant window, a pair of headlights and myriads of reflections on the wet asphalt – the symphony of light sounds in every stroke. Even the sky is filled with colorful sparks that fly over the roofs like someone’s dreams. Look around – this magic is spilled in the air! You just have to open your eyes.
