The artist is Aivazovsky
Krasnaya Gorka (Big Izhora) played the role of the temporary refuge of the Petrovsky fleet during the capture of Vyborg in 1710. The “camp journal” of 1710 recorded that galleys and senior vessels, heading in spring to Vyborg’s besieged by Russian regiments, “on May 1 spent the night near the red hill”, where Peter, managing the Lizette yacht, found shelter from ice. Soon, “the great misfortune happened, the provisions of ships and galleys almost everything took ice in the Big Sea much far away.”.
Aivazovsky captured the episode when Peter, saving his fleet, incites a bonfire on the shore, serving as a lighthouse. A week later, the fleet was able to deliver food to Vyborg, and on May 10, the unloading of weapons and troops in the Vyborg Gulf began. Soon Vyborg gave up. In the same year, lighthouses began to install on the banks of the Gulf of Finland. // Svetlana Moiseeva. Electronic catalog “Heroes and villains of Russian history”. SPb, 2010. With. 173.
