The Power of Wind in Paintings of Aivazovsky – The Beaufort Scale

The 13-number Beaufort scale measuring the speed of wind via visual, observed effects of the wind is widely used by sailors. Remarkably, marine artist Hovhannes Aivazian (commonly known as Ivan Aivazovsky) portrayed a variety of marine art pieces, which can perfectly demonstrate each stage of the Beaufort scale.
