Description of the painting by Ivan Aivazovsky "Sea Strait with a lighthouse"


His work, "The Sea Strait with a lighthouse," was written by I., like all other landscapes of this artist, she is distinguished by her color scheme and technique. Small boats, sailboats and ships are scattered across the calm sea. Heavy high Crimean mountains, thick fog envelops, closing them from the viewer's gaze.

The majority of his seascapes (and there are more than 6,000 thousand), the author created on the Crimean coast. It is distinguished by its picturesqueness, a combination of rocky shores with the sea depths. So in this work, the author tried to convey the beauty of the Crimean nature, its power and strength.

Against the backdrop of heavy rocky cliffs, the boats look just like fluffs or swallows, gliding smoothly over the sea reflection. Looking at the picture, one can hear the squeaks of seagulls and the sound of the surf surfing against a lighthouse and ships. As the boats float forward, the viewer's thoughts float away to a state of peace and harmony. Balanced light colors relax and lull. The viewer wants to stay on the shore, and at least a little to admire this warm sea day.

The weather on the landscapes is calm, even, nothing portends misfortunes or storms. Evening. The sun has already set behind the rocks, there remains only a soft pink sunset, illuminating the heavenly expanses and clouds, reflected in the blue of the Black Sea. The sailors are returning home, taking from the fishing well-deserved prey.

Another important work item is the lighthouse. A dark inconspicuous turret rises near the shore and points all the ships to the house. Aivazovsky symbolizes the lighthouse with calm. It is he who has the whole hope of the sailor, he saves him from certain death in the depths of the sea, notifies about the direction, warns of the shallows. A lighthouse is certainly a symbol of the shore and home, warmth and family.
