Aivazovsky is a well-known Russian marine painter (that is, an artist who preferred the image of the sea), a battle painter and collector. There is a legend that his great-grandfather was a Turk, and when Azov was captured by Russian troops, he was adopted by an unknown Armenian who took pity on him and baptized him.
The veracity of the legend is unprovable, but Aivazovsky’s sensitivity to everything connected with the sea, his ability to use color for the most realistic transmission of real landscapes, and his love for the world, which alone can allow you to write so vibrant, clear and beautiful pictures, are obvious.
"Moonlight night. The Bathhouse in Feodosia ”is one of many paintings with which the artist sings the sea, admires him and gives other people the opportunity to look at him, the artist, with his eyes. It depicts a seascape - it’s already long night, the sea quietly rolls onto the shore with surf and retreats.
Sailing, the ships are sleeping, the city is sleeping in the distance, on the hills. The moon reigns over the world, floods it with its unfaithful, silver-green light, which is reflected in the sea and colors the clouds so that near the moon they are bright as the day sky. A small pool looms against their background in black silhouette. It has a gabled roof, warm orange light pouring from an open door.
A woman sits in the bathhouse, and just as the moon is alone in the sky, so alone is she in this frozen sleeping world, full of the mystical radiance of a night luminary. The woman's hands are folded on her knees, black hair is tied in a bun, there is no fear on her face. In the silence of the night, she is only part of it, and there is no reason for the parts to be afraid of the whole.
The queen moon favorably pours out light on the subsided waves, and only quietly creak the tackle of the dormant ships, let the surf rustle, rushing ashore in eternal rhythm and rolling away from it lazily and slowly.
