Aivazovsky exhibition in St. Petersburg
07.26.2005 11:27

ayvazovsky An exhibition of the great Russian marine painter Ivan Aivazovsky's works from the Central Naval Museum's collection is to be held, with a focus on the Russian Navy.

The exhibition is timed to coincide with Navy Day on July 31 and the upcoming tercentenary of the museum, according the Kultura TV website (www.cultcorp.ru).

Aivazovsky's work comprises some 6,000 paintings, most of which depict heroic episodes from the Russian Navy's history.

The Naval Museum has 24 of Aivazovsky's paintings and one graphic work. Some of these are well-known, and others, which were previously believed missing, are of special interest for lovers of the marine genre.

Aivazovsky (1817-1900) was the last and most prominent Russian romantic painter, and his work is typified by his heroic marine battle scenes. In 1839, he took part in naval campaign near the Caucuses. After that, he was given a title and the right to wear an admiral's uniform, and became an artist on the General Naval Staff.
