Peace, tranquility, serenity spreads in the air of a wonderful day, already sloping towards the sunset. Lighted by pink clouds indicate the approach of a warm, quiet evening. The Italian coast is calm and thoughtful; a slight ripple runs through the surface of the sea, but the breeze is almost invisible. At such a time, it’s nice to take a leisurely stroll by boat on the calm sea, admiring the picturesque beaches of Italy!
In Aivazovsky’s “Italian Landscape, Evening”, a soft blue-and-blue scale dominates, in which a soft pink pastel and a few golden shades are reflected – the gleam of the disappeared sun on the walls of the coastal city, on the sail of a fishing schooner and on the sea surface. Light pink and lilac shades make the horizon more romantic with the misty outlines of the mountains. Closer to the left edge of the paint canvas is fuller, thicker: the evening is approaching. But walking in the boat still catch glimpses of the passing day, admiring from the sea to the delightful landscape of the Apennines.
