Description of the painting by Ivan Aivazovsky "Alexander Pushkin on the seashore"


The canvas was painted in 1887 with oil on canvas.

Aivazovsky is a great Russian painter. His canvases are known all over the world. He gained his popularity in his youth, after presenting his works on marine subjects at the exhibition.

Then she made an incredible impression on artists. His love of the sea has been with him since childhood, since he was born and raised on his shore. He traveled to many European countries, where he created more than fifty paintings with different sea landscapes. His legacy is invaluable to our country.

Aivazovsky's works depict the sea element in all its manifestations: calm, storm, sunset and dawn, the open sea and bays in famous picturesque places.

But another admiration for the artist was the work of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin. Aivazovsky’s personal acquaintance with Pushkin occurred in St. Petersburg in 1836. This event inspired the artist to create new paintings. He writes a series of paintings dedicated to Alexander Sergeyevich.

The artist’s work “Pushkin on the seashore” is one of Aivazovsky’s great creations. He created it when 50 years passed after the death of a brilliant poet. It depicts Pushkin sitting on the seashore at sunset. He thinks something to his head, perhaps write new verses.

The sea surface is slightly worried, as if greeting the great poet. The painting once again proves the mastery of Aivazovsky’s brush. The combination of colors, shadows, lines gives the canvas of realism and depth.

This is the second picture dedicated to the poet and the sea. Another world-famous canvas is Pushkin’s Farewell to the Sea. This painting strikes the mind of anyone who looks at it.

The masterpiece of painting “Pushkin by the Sea” was donated by the Aivazovsky Museum of the Academy of Arts. Now she is in the Museum named after Vereshchagin. There it is stored to this day. In the war years, the canvas was badly damaged. When he was discovered by the artist Stepanenko, it was in a very poor condition. After that, the restorer worked on it.
