Charles Atamian


     Charles Atamian is one of the most prominent seascape painters in Armenian and European art. He spent his long and fruitful life in foreign lands: Italy, France, Belgium, England, where he fundamentally studied his profession with famous masters, then presenting his works in art galleries and exhibitions. He showed great interest in painting, thus the school administrators had him enroll in the studio run by the teachers Paoletti and Tagliapietra.

     Atamian used to spend a lot of time at the ocean shore, getting there his ispiration and ideas for his future paintings.  Sea calmness, low and high tide, whirlwind, flying birds, people on the shore – his brush shows us all these natural events, which have inspired him, in their perfect reality.
