Description of the painting by Ivan Aivazovsky "Sunset over Ischia"


For many years, Aivazovsky’s creativity has been delighting a wide variety of people belonging to different social strata, different ages. He was born, grew up, lived on the seashore. Therefore, his love for marine creativity is understandable.

The works of this artist are often attracted by the fact that the viewer begins to hear the sound of sea waves, rocks falling in them, peals of thunder and crackling lightning. So really he managed to write the sea. Someone considered Aivazovsky’s work to be too pathos, not perceiving such a noisy and vivid form of expression of feelings.

The canvas "Sunset over Ischia" differs in contrast with calmness and pacification, you can look at it indefinitely, like a real sunset. Almost in the center of the picture is a sailing raft, another one is visible in the distance in the sea fog.

The third sailboat can be seen in the distance, it is small, but it is written as if it glows from the sunset. The fog seems to envelop everything around before nightfall. But while the sea waves are illuminated by the sun still not hidden behind the island. Golden sunlight merges softly with shades of blue sky, adding gold to the clouds. The sea in the picture is surprisingly calm, and in the rays of sunset it seems golden at all.

All the artist’s creations cause contemplators sincere strong feelings and vivid experiences. Only he could make a person survive many emotions by simply looking at the seascape. And these emotions are often completely sincere and direct.
