Vincent Van Gogh painted the picture “Road with Cypresses and a Star” already in a madhouse in the vicinity of Saint-Rémy. This was the last year of his life, when periods of insanity interspersed with periods of enlightenment.

The main paintings of the last year are landscapes and still lifes, in which nervous tension in combination with dynamism is especially noticeable.

Zhukovsky is a famous Russian landscape painter.

The painting “One of the best marine painters of all time - Ivan Konstantinovich Aivazovsky“ The Stormy Sea ”was painted in 1844.

He believed that the movement of any element: water, lightning and wind - it is impossible to capture immediately with a brush, so a real artist should remember them and always keep them in his memory.
The creation of this canvas is associated with the name of the tycoon Adolf Stockwe, who in 1904 decided to build a huge family. At that time, it was fashionable to paint paintings on and inside buildings, so the Vienna industrialist invited several artists (including Gustav Klimt), offering them a contract.
