ArmInfo. The Moscow Cultural and Business Center (MKDC) "HOUSE OF MOSCOW" in Yerevan on July 24-29 initiated a cycle of onlinҐ events "Days of Aivazovsky". The initiative is timed to the performance on July 29 of the great  Armenian marine painter Hovhannes (Ivan) Aivazovsky 203 years old.

According to the press service of the House, within the framework of  the program, in cooperation with the Feodosia Art Gallery named after  I.K. Aivazovsky and the National Picture Gallery of Armenia, virtual  tours, lectures, a quiz and acquaintance with the descendants of  Aivazovsky are planned.  <Hovhannes Aivazovsky was born in Feodosia,  in an Armenian family. The marine painter is a symbol of the  Armenian-Russian friendship, his art unites all peoples. 200 years  later, airports are named after him, monuments are erected and much  more. The artist left a large creative legacy, which is rightfully  part of the treasury of world culture, "said Vahram Karapetyan,  Director General of the Moscow House of Moscow ICDC in Yerevan.

In July, the Feodosia Art Gallery named after I.K. Aivazovsky is  often crowded - it is visited not only by tourists, but also by the  residents of the city. Hovhannes Aivazovsky is a symbol and a  visiting card of Feodosia, all city signs lead to the house of the  marine painter, which has now turned into a museum- gallery. This  year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the ICDC "HOUSE OF MOSCOW" in  Yerevan made it possible, in an online format, to get acquainted with  the life and work of the marine painter, with his creative heritage.  The virtual tour will be conducted by the director of the Feodosia  Art Gallery named after I.K. Aivazovsky Tatiana Gaiduk.

"Of course, nothing can replace direct live communication with art,  especially in the case of Aivazovsky's works, but this is a great  opportunity to enjoy the artist's magnificent works," said the  gallery's director Tatiana Gaiduk.

As part of the Aivazovsky Days events, the descendants of the great  artist from Australia, Great Britain, Russia, and the United States  will congratulate their great-grandfather on his 203rd birthday in  their video messages and tell interesting stories.

<From here Aivazovsky watched the movement of warships and went out  on deck, made pencil sketches in his notebook. Following him, already  in the 20th century, his grandchildren came here. Now these memorable  places are visited by us, the descendants of the great marine  painter>, said Irina Kasatskaya, a descendant of Aivazovsky's second  daughter? And? Kasatskaya great-granddaughter of the marine painter  Alexei Vasilyevich Ganzen. Alexey Ganzen is the grandson of  Aivazovsky, who continued the work of his grandfather.

Aivazovsky's favorite grandson was an innovator and test pilot,  Konstantin, the father of Olga Artseulova?  Only he, according to  Olga Konstantinovna, was allowed to be in the "holy of holies" - the  painter's workshop at the time when he was painting.

`` I was born and live in Moscow (for 80 years now) and,  unfortunately, have never been to Armenia, with age I feel more and  more deep genetic ties with the great, courageous, talented Armenian  people, whose faithful son and patriot was my world-famous  great-grandfather>, said Olga Artseulova?

Aivazovsky's birthday is celebrated by sailors, art lovers, art  critics, veterans of the navy. In recent years, Lucy and Federica  Rogers (descendants of Aivazovsky's third daughter, Alexandra),  together with their friends, first visited Feodosia and Armenia.   <Feodosia and Armenia were amazing. We had the opportunity to join  the rich history, meet nice people.  We were impressed by the great  history, beautiful monasteries. Thank you for remembering us. And we  remember you and hope to see you soon, "said Lucy Rogers.
