The painting you've referred to, "The Birth of Aphrodite" by Ivan Aivazovsky, painted around 1887, depicts the mythical birth of the Greek goddess Aphrodite from the sea foam. Aivazovsky was known for his mastery of seascapes, and this painting is a testament to his ability to capture the movement and power of the sea, as well as its transcendent qualities. The use of light and darkness creates a dramatic contrast, emphasizing the supernatural event taking place. The dark and stormy sky opens up to reveal a bright, divine light, while the sea churns with energy and foam. Figures seem to emerge from the waves, witnessing the miraculous event. This work is a fine example of Aivazovsky's romantic and expressive treatment of maritime subjects, infused with classical mythology.
