Overview of the painting :
Moonlight night. The bathhouse in Feodosia is Aivazovsky. 1853. Oil on canvas. 94×143
Night silence envelops the sea, sky and coast, plunging the world into unsightly darkness, eternal and absolute. But the moon comes to heaven – and the world is illuminated by the ghostly light of the night lamp. Amazing night paints make you see the usual landscape in a new way.
The greenish-gold palette of the illuminated sky and lunar path against the backdrop of the surrounding night darkness makes this landscape mysterious and bewitching.
The mystical beauty of the painting by Aivazovsky “Lunny Night. The bathhouse in Theodosius ”attracts with a combination of unusual color, a sense of amazing calm hanging in the real air. The sea is like a liquid mirror reflecting the ghostly, fire-faced radiance of the moon. It seems to be otherworldly, unlike the warm light of human housing.
Somewhere far away, in a foggy haze, the city sleeps and ships doze off with sails. The world is real. It seems that we hear a ringing silence spilled over the night sea in Theodosius.
