View of Echmiadzin in Armenia, version of a 1783 watercolor
Mikhail Ivanov's "View of Echmiadzin in Armenia" (1783-1823) perfectly reflects the period with its splendid architecture enveloped by nature. These motifs, along with the suggestion of waning light, give the picture a powerful emotional presence. (00237)
