Antiquity Possesses unique property of overcoming of time. She comes from the past in The present in an aura of mysterious myths and legends, and a long loop historical Events lasts behind it, but cannot hold down its easy act. Lasting Charm of an antiquity is hidden in the nature surrounding her. That is why we aspire To visit places where the antiquity arose and took the first steps.

In November, 2002 to Egypt for the first time has arrived known Moscow artist Julia Dolgorukov to have a rest in Charm - el - Sheikh. This Resort name paradise on the ground. Julia has stopped in hotel "ZOUARA". In the first Day of arrival has approached to Julia respectable mister, the owner of hotel and it The founder, architect Mustafa Saaban. It has started talking in English: "Let To ask you how you like hotel "ZOUARA"?

Flattered with the answer, Mustafa Saaban has invited Julia to survey All hotel ensemble also has suggested to take part in registration of interiors. " I think, you have paid attention to uniqueness of an arrangement of hotel " Зоуара ". One His party is focused on mountains and desert, another - to Red sea. With the account Features of a surrounding landscape I have developed the concept of scenery of all numbers Hotel pictures - landscapes of the local nature. Coming back in number after Bathings in Red sea, or after excursion in mountains, or pilgrimage on mountain Моисея, having a rest should see before itself all a same Egyptian landscape, Represented in a picture. Painting is called to become center of meditation Having a rest to return peace of mind and, at the same time, to please a look Color, characteristic for local places. Color as you know, possesses the person Force of influence on all alive matter. All kinds of arts hidden узами are connected Among themselves. Their synthesis forms so-called "the second reality" after the first Realities - the protogenic nature at which we study all life. I shall be glad, If the pictures created by you, become an ornament of hotel interiors, Called to give having a rest pleasure", - has finished monologue Mustafa Saaban.

And Red sea at once has fascinated Julia: she swam away with ластами far from Coast of the beach, attracted by a chasm mysteriously darkening in deep failures of a bottom.

- The chasm simply tightens in depth of the sea. I in time Has come round, has come up on a surface, has floated to coast. Kilometers of depth Begin right after a coral reef. Red sea here the deepest and The most artful. Many was sink, - were recollected by Julia, having returned in Moscow.

The sea landscapes executed in hotel "ZOUARA" and Decorated 27 his numbers, filled sensation of greatness and beauty

"Protagonists" of water colors - the sea and the sky. The sea It is poured by all shades of turquoise And sapphire, and above water open space сияет the red-coral sky."In Charm - el - Sheikh surprising risings and declines, they amaze imagination. To me It would be desirable to embody the symphony of this color in painting."Sun", "the Sun above By sea ","Call","the Rainbow", are not simply written from a nature as initial Sketches. Their composition, them coloristic build thoroughly me are thought over. In Their seeming direct my feeling of love to Egypt "is reflected,- Julia speaks.
