Grandiose canvas Aivazovsky. The painting depicts the Mediterranean Sea. At the shore there is a fishing boat. The fisherman is resting on the shore. The fisherman guards his sleep. Noon. Heat. The sea is calm, majestic, leaving in an infinite distance. Above it is clear air saturated with sunlight. Everything is freshened with peace and happiness.
Even the sunny path on the sea surface of the bluish-milky color of opal speaks of a happy calm in which nature is now immersed. And with this peace of nature, the tranquil rest of the fisherman on the shore is in harmony. In this picture, depicting everyday life, a lot of poetry and light reflections. In it everything is tangible and material: both shore, and water, and even air, permeated with light.
