Being from Armenian descent, Ivan Aivazovsky was deeply affected by the Armenian Massacres of 1894–1896. He painted a series of paintings about these massacres, among which Night. Tragedy in the Sea of Marmara (1897). It shows how Armenians are thrown overboard in the middle of the night by people loyal to the Ottoman Empire. Aivazovsky (1817-1900) was already 80 years old when he painted this work. It is one of the thousands of seascapes he painted during his life. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Aivazovsky #IvanAivazovsky #Armenian #Russian #Seascape #Drama #Massacre #Marmara #SeaofMarmara #Ottomans #Dramatic
