about this painting:
Venice Grand Canal
Which city has the most canals? Of course Venice and the biggest of them is the Grand Canal, namely this canal is depicted in the painting. This is the key waterway of the city that permeates it all through. And Leonid Afremov tried to depict it in the most vivid colors. Thus, in the painting we see the real Venetian carnival – the carnival of colors and lights. Evening fell on the city and all the walls of the houses are painted in orange, illuminated by electric lamps.
The most striking element is the image of the sky – it is made in the form of multicolored confetti. In the center of the canvas is the Grand Canal stretching into the distance. Low-rise Venetian houses are conveniently located along it, and on the right we find a pier with gondolas – this is one of the main means of transportation in the city. Residents living in the houses on one side of the street can visit their neighbors on the other side only by crossing the street on a gondola or on a bridge. However, in this painting of we don’t see any bridge and it is not known how far it is –most likely you will still have to use the services of gondoliers.
If you do decide to visit Venice and are interested in the Grand Canal, here is a little information about this attraction of the city:
- Its length is 3.8 thousand meters, the width varies from 30 to 70 meters, and the depth is about 5 meters.
- The Grand Canal runs through the entire Italian city starting from a lagoon near the station and interconnecting with the canals of La Giudecca and San Marco at the customs building.
- From above, the Grand Canal is most similar to the inverted Latin letter S, which divides the city exactly in two.
Looking at this painting you will immediately want to find yourself in the city on the water. If you have not been to Venice yet, we hope that you will soon have such an opportunity, but you will always have the chance to admire the colors of the Italian city in the painting of Leonid Afremov.
