DescriptionCONSTANTIN ALEKSANDROVICH WESTCHILOFF (1877-1945)
Oil on canvas
23-1/2 x 31-1/2 inches (59.7 x 80.0 cm)
Signed lower right: C. Westchiloff
Known primarily as a seascape painter, Westchiloff studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg in the studio of the famous Wanderer artist Ilya Repin. He uses a palette of muted greens in this painting to capture the cresting waves of the foreground. The sun, hidden just beneath the horizon, spills light into the center of the canvas, creating a break in the thickening clouds and throwing reflections of copper over the scene.
