Aivazovsky is amazing! There is a huge collection of his work in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow for anyone who is interested.

Re: Favourite Seascape Artist

Here's a Turner that I quite like! I have been going through a Baroque thing lately and the Dutch produce some of the finest seascapes of their time!
