The artist is Aivazovsky
Full of magnificent peace and silence of the motif of the midday sea form the basis of the landscape image rare even in the Aivazovsky force of generalization. The world pierced by a clear, pearl-pink light-the vast surface of the water off the Crimean shores, the sky with slowly swirling clouds-is depicted at the zenith of its natural force.At the artist’s personal exhibition in St. Petersburg (1891), a picture exhibited under the name "A group of clouds", was bought by the Academy of Arts, and since 1897 he was one of the first exhibits of the Russian Museum. Its reduced option is a canvas "Shtil off the Crimean coast" (1899, Theodosian art gallery. And. To. Aivazovsky).
