about this painting:
The queen of flowers
Those who have many pieces of canvas painting at home are likely to have some still lifes depicting flowers. Flowers are sure to delight their observer. Moreover, every flower has its symbolical meaning, which sometimes enables us to read the paintings where flowers are depicted. A rose is the most popular and adorable flower in the world. It is almost impossible to find a person who is indifferent to roses. This flower has been so popular for the last centuries that it has plenty of different symbolical meanings, and the whole European culture is impregnated with the symbols of roses. The Wars of the Roses was one of the most important parts of the English history, and there are many novels, poems, musical compositions and paintings dedicated to the rose. In this marvellous painting Leonid Afremov also pays tribute to the most beautiful and deepest flower in the world.
The taming of the rose
This piece of canvas painting depicts several wild roses of red put in a yellow vase against the yellow background. We know that every rose has not only the beautiful petals but also thorns. The very nature of the flower is both enchanting and dangerous, and its beauty is majestic and intractable. Nevertheless, the roses have been tamed and the skilful vase is to save their charming wildness. And yet it is evident to us that these wild roses are not humbled, for the whole space around the roses is chaotic and the unruly flowers destroy the strict boundaries of the civilisation, and this chaos of forms and colours makes us feel the true beauty of enchanting wildness.
Some widespread symbolical meanings of the rose
In ancient Rome roses were thought to symbolise mystery, morality and courage.
White roses are the symbol of purity and innocence.
Red roses symbolise love and are also an attribute of Jesus Christ.
Wild roses are able to bring a stirring atmosphere to your house. Unfortunately, flowers are to wither, however, if you buy this canvas picture by Leonid Afremov, you obtain the roses that will never wither.
