Painting by Alexey Bogoliubov
Battle of Gangut on 27 July 1714. 1876. Oil on canvas.
The Central Naval Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia
Alexey has shown here the naval battle at Gangut that took place in 1714. This oil on canvas of 1876 shows the core of the battle at sea with ships burning and the plumes of smoke billowing towards the clear sky. The water surface is more like a river. This painting is at the Central Naval Museum at St. Petersburg in Russia.
This is a more closer view of the naval warfare at Gangut painted by Alexey in 1876 as oil on canvas. The picture vividly shows three burning ships and another five ships alongside. This battle scene painting is another brilliant representation of his imagination by Alexey. This work of art is kept at The Central Naval Museum at St. Petersburg in Russia.
