Comprising a digital exhibition and four books produced by Boyut Publishing, Aivazovsky’s Istanbul is a multi-media feast of music and a vast selection of the artist’s work that would have been impossible to exhibit together otherwise.
The exhibition debuts on 8 October 2015 at Feodosia, Crimea, the artist’s place of birth and his beloved city where he painted the majority of his work. Aivazovsky’s Istanbul later moves to New York on 15 October 2015 and to Yerevan on 24 October 2015.
Aivazosvky is one of the leading artists uniting Russian, Armenian and Turkish cultures. Famous throughout the world, Aivazovsky remains one of the world’s most popular painters.
Aivazovsky toured America, visiting Boston, Washington, New York and the Niagara Falls, one of countless American landscapes he painted. Some of his finest Istanbul canvases adorn the homes of American collectors.
Aivazovsky visited Istanbul eight times. He was entertained in the palaces by three Ottoman sultans. This digital exhibition showcases sixty-one of the over 200 Istanbul scenes he had painted. An additional 300 of his most popular paintings are also on display. All are accompanied by the Aivazosvky Rhapsody, specifically composed by Anjelika Akbar.
