The romantic marina “Gurzuf”, written by Aivazovsky in 1859, is distinguished by a special color scheme: a bright azure lagoon, clear waters that peacefully carry a fishing boat far from the coast, amazes the viewer with its exceptional beauty.
The underwater landscape, skillfully painted by Aivazovsky in a thin stripe, is laid out in the foreground. The port town is shrouded in a light morning haze. A ship moored in the distance abruptly climbed ashore. If you listen to the lyrics of the canvas, you can hear how the sailors arrived are noisily pushing in the coastal market, waking the sleeping city from sleep. The digging of people sitting on the shore in the background, admires this gentle azure dawn by the sea, how gratifying it is to look into the blue distance!
Where the sky, turning pale, merges with the horizon, huge cumulus clouds grow, climbing one another, peacefully and accurately hanging over the mountains, as if shy to touch their low peaks. The sea and air elements of the magnificent marina of Aivazovsky this time do not go into confrontation, they harmoniously coexist with each other, slightly merging in their soft halftones. Freshness and warmth blows from this beautiful seascape.
The rocky ridge of the mountain was tired of holding on to the noisy Partenit, its rickety shanties quieted down in the shade of the morning flowering. Once upon a time here stood the impregnable walls of the fortress, towers towered around the perimeter of the city and a huge castle, towering into the sky, stood on the slope of Kale Poti.
The exceptional mastery of the artist Aivazovsky draws his eyes to the magnificent sea landscapes, makes you admire the azure surface of the sea, consider the entire coastal town with its quiet charm in the smallest details. Each viewer, looking at the picture "Gurzuf" wants to be in this magical place.
