The Northern Convoys: Historical Reconstruction in the Seascape and Battle Genre by Contemporary Marine Artists

The work of marine artists is conducted at the intersection of art itself and the scientific approach:

"An important condition for the creation of works is not only the skill of artists, graphic artists, and sculptors, but the scientific approach to the military equipment, weapons, and uniforms being depicted. For museum artists it is an opportunity on the basis of documentary sources and ship models to create historically truthful works of art"

(from the article by M. S. Oleinik "’Inspired by the Sea’. Activities of Marinist Military Artists at the Central Naval Museum Workshop", translated from Russian)

Marinists turn to the theme of the Northern Convoys, striving to achieve maximum historical authenticity in their works.
