Ayvazovsky as great as Armenia’s culture and art – Director of the State Russian Museum

“It is a great honor and privilege to participate at this conference, considering the fact that Hovhannes Ayvazovsky is as great as Armenia’s culture and art,” Director of the State Russian Museum Vladimir Gusev stated during his remarks at the international conference “Borders of Marine Art” dedicated to the 200th birth anniversary of Hovhannes Aivazovsky underway in Yerevan.
Gusev referred to the rich Armenian cultural heritage and described Ayvazovsky as ‘one of the brightest starts’ in it.

“Languages, borders, political developments, ideology are at the heart of the peoples’ divide around the world. Yet there is another world that comes to unite them which is the world of art. That is why we should not divide Ayvazovsky and his legacy. I guess I wouldn’t offend to state Aivazovsky is yours but a little bit of him is ours. in Russia, you will hardly find anyone who doesn’t know Aivazovsky and does not admire his art,” Gusev said.

The museum director recalled exhibitions opened at the Russian State Theatre and the State Tretyakov Gallery earlier this year, where visitors lined up outside the museum entrances to attend the exhibition.
 
To note, the “Borders of Marine Art” conference is attended by Armenian and foreign experts, specialists, art critics, art collectors, publishers from Theodosia, Moscow and St. Petersburg largest museums, cultural centers.

Apart from Vladimir Gusev, among the guests of the conference are Director of the Ayvazovsky Museum in Theodosia Tatyana Gayduk, the Head of the section of paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries at the State Tretyakov Gallery Galina Churak, art critic, longtime researcher of Aivazovsky’s creativity and author of number of books and articles Ivan Samarin from London, one of largest collectors of Ayvazovsky’s works, researcher from the U.S. Andreas Roubian told reporters on Friday.

This year marks the 200th birth anniversary of the world-famous seascape painter Hovhannes Aivazovsky. The anniversary is included in UNESCO's list of memorable dates in 2017.
