Fine work of Odessa has its recognizable face. Distinctive features of Odessa painting were a special southern color, inspired by the sea space, a sense of space and air, the subtlety of the relationships, the absence of obvious contrasts. The Odessa school is a combination of tradition and innovation, realistic and unrealistic creativity, the traditions of the South Russian school and the avant-garde, realistic and open-air painting, aspiration to freedom of creativity.
