This colorful landscape was made by a master, around the second half of the 1820s. When Sylvester Shchedrin was in Italy, he was so inspired by its views that in the end, he got even more ideas for writing different landscapes than he managed to realize.

For the entire period that the master managed to spend in Sorento, about 40 masterpieces came out from under his brush. Locals, by the way, gave him an interesting nickname - Don Silvestro.

The canvas opens up the most beautiful view of the outgoing day, not far from the harbor of Castellammare. To be precise, this is a suburb of ancient Stabia, which is located on the shores of the Gulf of Naples.

The most beautiful evening landscape. In the background, as if moving away from the horizon, a rocky hill is seen, shimmering with beautiful ocher and greenish hues. The day is coming to an end, and the sun's rays lazily illuminate the stone buildings, which very brightly sparkle from the water surface of the warm gulf.

The artist randomly arranged the fishing boats that are at the pier, most likely the fishermen recently returned from fishing and went home with their catch. The right flank of the canvas shows a rocky coast, which gradually passes into all the same Italian buildings made of stone and all this against the background of trees drowned in the evening light.

The sky is executed in colorful colors with obviously divided color and clouds going into the distance. Thanks to the sunset, it turned into shades of orange to blue. All this, only once again emphasizes the complete serenity.

In principle, the artist was even more attracted to pacified landscapes and never tried to capture stormy moments or views with a storm, as Aivazovsky liked to do. And this very picture confirms this conclusion again.
