Ivan Aivazovsky Art

Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky (July 29, 1817 - May 5, 1900), a Russian Romantic/Academic painter of Armenian descent, most famous for his seascapes, which constitute more than half of his paintings. Aivazovskiy's name is intricately bound with the sea. In his best seascapes he has revealed his inner self through the spirit of the times, his ideals of humanism, and the love of freedom.

Aivazovskiy had a vivid and emotional understanding of reality. He always remained a romantic at heart even through his art could never separate itself from his academic background. The artist's expressive language was in complete harmony with the techniques that he used. As a young boy Aivazovskiy had known the sea, had loved it passionately and had known the secrets of its movements. It was this memory, together with his imagination, that was responsible for his best works. Rather than merely "reproduce" the sea, Aivazovskiy tells us its fables and thus makes a symbolic statement.

The concept of light is all important to Aivazovskiy. The perceptive viewer will observe that while painting the waves, clouds or sky space, the artist's emphasis is on the light. In Aivazovskiy's art light is the eternal symbol for life, hope and faith. This is light the creator, the concept of which has its roots deep down in Armenian culture and its continuity in the next generation of Armenian artists.

Due to his long life in art, Aivazovsky became the most prolific Russian painter of his days. He left over 6000 works at his death in 1900. With funds earned during his successful career as an artist he opened an art school and gallery in his home town of Feodosiya. As of 2006, Aivazovsky's works have been auctioned for as much as $3,200,000, and his international reputation continues to grow. He is also said to be the most forged of all Russian painters. His works are in the most renowned museums throughout the world, including New York's Metropolitan Museum and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
