BIBLIOGRAPHY :

Shahen Khachatourian, Hovhannes /Ivan/ Aïvazovsky, p. 275 fig. Shahen Khachatourian, Ivan (Ovannes) Aïvazovsky 1817-1900, Yerevan, 2013, p. 134 fig. Shahen Khachatourian, Aïvazovsky 1817-1900, p. 114 fig.

In 1897 Aïvazovsky organizes an exhibition in Odessa that he dedicates to the martyrdom of the christians of the East. Two paintings are devoted to the massacre of the Armenians in the sea of Marmara. If the first version (1), conserved in Beirut, shows the violence of persecution, our table covers the same subject in a less dramatic.

The spectacle of the peaceful sea contrast with the horror of the scene, Aïvazovsky shows the triumph of nature and art on the barbarism of the ottoman.

This work of mature performed with a rare virtuoso alla prima.
