ARARAT supports presentation of restored Aivazovsky painting

PanARMENIAN.Net - On July 17, the official presentation of Ivan Aivazovsky’s restored painting “Christ with His Disciples” (1887) took place at the Geological Museum and Art Gallery of Dilijan, honoring the seascape artist’s 205th anniversary.

Guests had the opportunity to see the painting for the first time since 1994, when it was damaged. Moreover, this year marks the 135th anniversary of the creation of the painting, which made the event even more unique. The painting depicts the artist's eternal muse — the Sea — which in this work serves as a bright, alluring and incredibly deep exposition for the Biblical story.

ARARAT Brandy enriched the ceremonial part of the event, during which guests got to discover the contemporary facets of Armenian brandymaking. The year is symbolic for the Armenian brandy heritage as well, as it also marks its 135th anniversary.

Over the years, ARARAT has been supporting different events dedicated to the great artist. In 2016, ARARAT supported an exhibition dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the painter, while in 2017 it became the official partner of the exhibition “Hovhannes Aivazovsky: Creation” at the National Gallery of Armenia.
