The artist is Aivazovsky
The creative fantasy of the master was inexhaustible in search of new compositional techniques and light effects. Canvas "Sea view from the mountains. Crimea" belongs to the best of the Aivazovsky created in the 1860s. As a response on the topics of modern realistic painting, the scene placed in the foreground is perceived here with a Tatar wagon on a mountain road and a figure asking for alms of a beggar. The fire sunset over the sea gives the image of the notes of drama. Exceptional visual memory in combination with the work on imagination, the artist’s creative courage allowed him to achieve an unexpected effect in this picture "planetary" immense space.
