Description of the painting by Ivan Aivazovsky "Calm"


This artist was firmly associated with the great natural phenomenon - the sea. All his canvases are about the sea. Almost all. There are simple landscapes - earthly. But in the world he has long been recognized as a landscape painter. What kind of sea or ocean he did not depict on canvases - either in a storm, then in a storm, then in full calm. He depicted disasters, loss of life at sea or after a storm, when the survivors suffer. And no one will understand when the sea can be safe for humans.

The security option was proposed by the author himself. Here it is on the canvas. The sea is completely calm, and a family is resting on the shore. There is no danger, even a child is swimming nearby. But the sea is not the sea, if at least a boat does not appear on the horizon. And here on the canvas flaunts a small brig. It’s already sunset and how good it is to cool swim in the warm and even in such a calm sea.

The artist did not set the task of depicting someone in more detail on the canvas, everything is equally proportional. But nevertheless the sky takes a slightly larger place. It, like the sea, a calm pre-sunset is no longer so blue. How many flowers on it at once: pink, blue, and white - and all this is reflected in the calm waves of the sea.

Until now, everyone is amazed at how Aivazovsky was able to convey the naturalness of water with paints. If you look closely at his canvases, it seems that the water moves or shimmers with all the colors of the rainbow. It seems that water is about to gush out of the canvas. He never revealed this secret to anyone, left it with him. Of course, there are many more marine painters, but alas, there are no such artists as Aivazovsky. His work makes many work even better, but so far no one has succeeded in reaching the level of master.

Maybe just a little bit, it seems, but still not so lively and not so realistic. Aivazovsky left us a huge amount of paintings. There is a museum where only his works are stored, it is located in Yevpatoriya.
