The Metaphysics of Light

This December, just before the Christmas, members of the Association MOTUS VITA have visited the exposition of the world-famous painter Ivan Aivazovsky in the Art Museum RIGA BOURSE. It has to be mentioned that many of the exhibition tour participants are involved in such a hobby as painting, so the visit to the Museum was considered as a meeting with the Teacher.

Ivan Aivazovsky (1817 – 1900) was a world-famous Russian painter which is mainly known as a master of marine landscapes, whose art was admired already by his contemporaries.

The concept of the exhibition “Metaphysics of Light” is based on the intention to show the artist’s paintings from various artistic periods with light as the dominant composition element. The exhibition consists mainly of works from the collections of the museums from Latvia, Estonia and Ukraine. All the paintings are interconnected by the common theme – light.
