The Battle of Chesme Painting by Ivan Aivazovsky
The Battle of Chesme.
This sea battle scene of the Chesme channel has been vividly presented
by Aivazovsky in this 1848 oil on canvas. The ships burning and the flames
lighting up the sky at night are so well executed. The victorious Russians
got control of the Black Sea when they routed the Turks. This is the author’s
outstanding sea battle painting which can be seen at The Aivazovsky Art
Gallery at Feodosia in Ukraine.
