The Paintings of Ivan Aivazovsky
Following the success of Seas, Cities and Dreams in 2000, the authors return with a second volume on the works of this remarkable 19th century master who raised European maritime painting to a new level. A towering figure in his day, he shot to international fame at an early age. His exhibitions drew enormous crowds all over the world and earned him the admiration of Vernet and Turner. He was elected a member of five European academies and was personally acquainted with most of the crowned heads of his day. In his long and colourful career Aivazovsky claimed to have painted over 6,000 pictures.
The authors—the foremost experts on the artist—have gathered the material for this book from public and private collections worldwide. The large number paintings illustrated offer a significant addition to the published corpus of Aivazovsky’s oeuvre. Their chronological arrangement makes this volume an invaluable resource for scholars, collectors and Aivazovsky’s many admirers.
