Sea Romance | Russian Art Center
"Sea Romance. Painting by Russian and German Artists of the 19th Century” is a journey into the world of ideal painting of the 19th century. The guests got acquainted with Italian and Swiss motifs, which were considered the standard of beauty, appreciated the complex play of colors of marine paintings and plunged into the "mysterious haze" of the thickets of Russian forests.

The connecting principle in the selection of works was the image of the water element, which acts as a symbol of transformation, a source of knowledge and a spiritually unifying force.

The temporary exhibition featured the works of the great Russian marine painter Ivan Aivazovsky (1817-1900), the virtuoso landscape painter Yuli Klever (1850-1924), professors of the Koenigsberg Academy of Arts Maximilian Schmidt (1818-1901), August Berendsen (1819-1886) and many others.
