Konstantin Alekseyevich Korovin Paintings Geocoded

Arkhangelsk Port on Dvina

Painting by Konstantin Alekseyevich Korovin (1861–1939). This artist worked in a loose, colorful style,  doing more interiors and people going about their days then landscapes.  His works often seemed to be lit by a light we don't normally seem, and the objects in the scene appear to be giving off their own light.  The outdoor scenes he has done are never peaceful; there is a wind blowing through everything, or else the very spinning of the Earth animated every location and gives them a dynamic appearance.
