1817—Ivan Aivazovsky, Russian painter, famous for his seascapes, is born.
Aivazovsky's paintings are original for romanticizing immense greatness and wild power of the sea and the braveness of people, fighting with the sea (The Ninth Wave, 1850). Witnessing the military manoeuvres of the Black Sea Fleet, Aivazovsky dedicated many of his paintings to brave Russian seamen (Chesmensky Battle and Navarinsky Battle, both dated to 1848).
