The artist knew how to love the sea and night, which allowed him to create masterpieces from ordinary things that open to the eyes of many people, but they do not notice all the beauty of the moment.
One of the best night paintings of Aivazovsky is considered to be his painting "Lunar Path". The first thing that catches your eye is the optical illusion created by the hand of a genius. The lunar path is capable of moving, or at least it seems so. Wherever the viewer is located, the path will lead directly to him.
The landscape created by Aivazovsky is full of romantic feelings and poetry. It is perceived as a declaration of love for the moonlit night unsurpassed in its beauty. The moon illuminates everything around during its reign in heaven. The canvas impresses with its vitality and naturalness. Here you can feel the harmony of the sea and man. And the moon, which indicates the right path, runs its rays through the waves. Drawing landmarks.
The saturation of the color palette is striking in the harmonious combination of different colors between each other and a huge number of nuances. Colors do not contrast, but imperceptibly flow into each other. These smoothed transitions consolidate the effect of integrity and harmony of the created image.
A graphic that is clear in terms of graphics gains clarity through the rich colors chosen by the artist for this work. Aivazovsky’s endless love for the night sea is transmitted to the viewer.
Poetically recreated images of the sea and the moons fascinate and attract to themselves. The expressiveness achieved through clarity and richness does not leave anyone indifferent.
By listening carefully, you can distinguish the quiet sound of the waves, the blows of oars on the water, feel the light breath of the sea breeze and feel the peace of the sleeping city, which the artist depicted in the background. Which once again proves how believable and full of life the picture is.
