How many battles dedicated his paintings Aivazovsky! Here and there is a sea battle.
The ships wrecked in battle, ragged sails floating around the wreckage, all around speak of a great battle, when the sailors fight “not on the belly but on death.”
Around the clouds of smoke, covering the sky, the sea, darkened from the ashes. It seems, you even feel the coldness of the water, you smell the gunpowder, you hear the thunder of explosions.
