Description of the painting by Ivan Aivazovsky “Calm Sea”


Aivazovsky at the peak of his artistic activity was able to create one of his most beautiful paintings, entitled "Calm Sea".

Naturally, all the artist’s paintings are united solely by the marine theme, but at the same time, this painting differs significantly from similar works by the author, namely that it has a certain spiritual maturity and emotional poise, despite the fact that the period of writing the painting falls at the time of rethinking your life .

It is no secret that the marine painter depicted the natural beauty of the sea, which is why this picture was made on the seashore. The picture is painted in oil and has a somewhat unusual palette of colors. Despite the fact that the shades are chosen precisely those that the master constantly uses, the landscape itself is provided somewhat unusual.

The picture perfectly shows the amazing play of light, along with gentle tints of sea water. Thanks to the unique technique, thanks to which the master was able to scatter light on the water, he easily and unobtrusively translates the viewer's gaze to the ship, which stands near the coast.

In that case, if the artist had not added to the overall picture this yellowish shade coming from the sun, then most likely the ship would have become mainly on the canvas, but thanks to this the master was able to give the canvas a completely different image.

Thus, not the ship becomes the basis of the picture, but the entire sea surface, and the ship acts only as an addition, so to speak, an integral part of it. The picture can cause the viewer extremely bright emotions, the name itself plays a significant role in this. And the fussy people who are nearby, perfectly balance the calm sea. The master perfectly emphasized that it is necessary to highlight and blur what is secondary.
