Magic night in the city
If you need to buy an art canvas with a cityscape scene, what would you choose – a city depiction in the daytime or a bright festive painting full of numerous lights reflected from the night lanterns? Many people prefer admiring the beauty of the city at night as such pictures better suit their home design and overall atmosphere. They add an element of fairytale to the room where it hangs. What is so magical about a modern art canvas like that? Artists of all epochs have depicted night in different manners. Just remember Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night” and “Starry Night over the Rhone” that have become the most prominent images of urban night in modern art history. The latter depicts the night sky and intense lights mirrored in the river. The canvas has provided the theme for painting for many of van Gogh’s successors.
Cityscape in Impressionism
Talking about cityscape painting, Impressionism should be certainly mentioned. The practitioners of the style focused on the scenes and atmosphere of everyday life in the city. Fine art experts distinguish the following subjects for cityscapes in the 19th century:
- Urban scenes
- Suburban areas
- Industrial sites
- Railway yards
During the 20th century artists turned to abstract and conceptual art, which declined the production of cityscapes. But later on figurative art revived giving a new birth to the cityscape genre.
One of the famous contemporary impressionists Leonid Afremov produces a wide range of palette knife oil paintings devoted to city sights, especially to night scenes. Many people often decorate their homes with his masterpieces since it’s possible to buy art canvas cheap in his online gallery. His works mainly depict:

- the harmony of vibrant colors and the calm atmosphere of the evening.
These perfect moments can be captured only by a talented artist. Take your chance and buy one of Leonid Afremov oil paintings dubbed as “Night Boulevard” that was inspired by the mysterious beauty of Czech Republic.
