Armenian Art in the Park
► Day 9: January 9th, 2016 - One Photo Upload a Day.
✈ Project 366 - Daily Travel Photos.
Yerevan is not an attractive city by any means, but some its surroundings are; Armenia's ancient monasteries and the views across to Mount Ararat.
At weekends, much of Armenia's beauty is displayed through works of art by local artists in Saryan park; elegantly arranged around the statue of one of the country's most famous masters of colour on canvas.
Martiros Saryan (1880-1972) was a Russian-Armenian painter and founder of the Armenian national school of painting.
The site of Saryan's house in Yerevan was extended into a house-museum during the artist's lifetime.
