Aivazovsky. In Pursuit of the Ideal

Ivan Aivazovsky. View of Mount Vesuvius a Day Before the Volcanic Eruption. 1885. Oil on canvas. Art Museum of Estonia
9 march—8 july 2018
The exhibition Aivazovsky. In Pursuit of the Ideal, displays works by Ivan Aivazovsky (1817–1900), a Russian painter of Armenian heritage who specialised in seascapes. The exhibition, comprised of 39 works, is the first large exposition of Ivan Aivazovsky’s works in Estonia.

The core of the exhibition is comprised of Ivan Aivazovsky’s famous paintings and drawings from the State Russian Museum in St Petersburg. At the exhibition, viewers can observe all of Aivazovsky’s creative periods and types of seascapes: from stormy to calm seas, from glowing sunsets to nocturnal scenes in shimmering moonlight, as well as views of Crimea, Italy, Odessa and Constantinople.

The exhibition at the Kadriorg Art Museum includes View of Mount Vesuvius a Day Before the Volcanic Eruption, which is part of the Art Museum of Estonia’s collection and has not been exhibited publicly since 1886. The painting was in very poor condition and required extensive conservation, a long-term process which has now been completed.

In addition to works from the State Russian Museum and the Art Museum of Estonia, the exhibition also includes works from the Narva Museum, Tartu Art Museum, private collections and the Latvian National Art Museum.
