about this painting:
At the origins
Jerusalem is the city of great history and great beauty cloaked in the heavy breath of the desert. When you come to Jerusalem, the first place you visit is the magnificent Wailing Wall, a sacred spot where local believers come to pray and mourn. This painting must be of special importance to Leonid Afremov who is Jewish by origin. We can see that he depicted the sanctuary of his people with great care and love. Rising in full color over a long chain of pilgrims barely noticeable at its basis, the Wailing Wall looks like the focus of hope and faith, the promise of supernatural protection even in the hardest times.
The power of Jewish spirit
Sticking to his usual painting manner, Afremov uses large multicolored strokes to convey the elevated emotions overtaking the viewer at the sight of this architectural masterpiece. The textured layers of red, orange and yellow shades create a perfect imitation of sandy rocks used to build the Wall. The arches leading inside the shrine are filled with a shiny blue mist that resembles some sort of divine light blessing the visitors. Complemented by its own reflection in the glazy tile surface and the profound night sky speckled with colorful lights, the Wailing Wall painting looks like a small miracle.
