Those waves look spectacular! Ship at Sunset off Cap Martin (1859) by Ivan Aivazovsky (1817-1900), a Russian/Armenian artist that created over 6,000 paintings during his career, of which most of them are seascapes. Aivazovsky was truly the master of rendering the sea in all sorts of circumstances. Calm or rough, day or night, sunlight or moonlight? To Aivazovsky it did not matter, he did it all. And for seas all across Russia and the Mediterranean. Aivazovsky grew up next to the Black Sea and so from a young age he became very familiar with the sea. And he painted it so often, that at some point in his career, he did not even have to look at it anymore to create the most spectacular seascapes. This painting at the French coast sold in 2019 for over $1.5 million. #Art #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #Painting #Seascape #Sea #Sunset #Waves #Wave #Water #OilonCanvas #OilPainting #RussianArt #Armenian #RussianArtist #RussianPainter #France #Coast #Sundown #Aivazovsky #IvanAivazovsky
