Landscape

Description

Because of its visible brush strokes, this painting is a highly impressionistic landscape of a rocky coastline meeting the sea. Here, the artist makes use of warm reds and browns to contrast the cool, refreshing quality of the ocean with the sturdy, homeliness of the Earth.

About the Artist: Born in Odessa, Russia, Alexandrovich was trained in Belgium and France before immigrating to the US in 1925 (his citizenship sponsor was fellow marine artist Ragnar Olson). At a 1939 show, his art was praised as “bringing to the painting of the sea a sympathetic understanding and a subtlety of expression that set his work apart....Unlike the majority of painters of the sea, he knows the value of mystery and suggestion, and yet with it all contrives to convey a sense of the ocean's resistless weight and might” (New York Sun 29 April 1939: 12). 1 more image at FAP.
