Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky (1817-1900)


Dear Wonderful Reader,

I am speechless.

I will try to muster the ability to summarize what I love about those paintings:

  • The delicate use of color
  • The amazingly beautiful light
  • The tranquility of the seascapes
  • The fury of the seascapes
  • The true to life waves

On to the paintings…
