A vivid representative of Russian painting is Aivazovsky. Its landscapes accurately convey the beauty of nature and create a special mood, immersing in a fabulous atmosphere.
One of such special, memorable works is “Sunset in Feodosia”. The picture shows the sunset over the small port of a small Crimean town. Several small schooners have landed, but in the distance you can see the approaching vessels of local fishermen. People stand on the shore and wave their hands, calling a lone fisherman in a boat.
The artist accurately conveyed the atmosphere of the Feodosia evening, the end of a difficult working day. You can feel the simplicity of life of the local population, plain clothes and cordial waving. Such images speak of openness of people. The city is depicted as a harbor, to which they return every evening, the atmosphere of home and comfort is felt.
Aivazovsky as a Crimean ship all the time returned to this harbor, here, to this small seaside town. The background of events is the majestic mountains that rise in the distance. This small town is lost among the mountain ranges and is conveniently located on the Black Sea.
The painter conveyed the diversity of colors of the last sun rays illuminating the coast. Glare on the water, shadows and reflections create the effect of photography. The sunset symbolizes the end of the day and preparation for something new, for the dawn, which will bring change and a beginning in everything.
The artist spent a lot of time in the Crimea and depicted a large number of landscapes of this amazing region. For Aivazovsky Theodosius was a special city, the picture conveys the beauty and personality of this small town, lost among the mountain peaks.
It was here that the painter’s life ended, this place healed for many years and gave vitality. The master wrote his last work here on the ninth ten of his life's journey.
