The Art Of Seascapes

The Art Of Seascapes:
Seascapes first played a significant part in art of the late 16th Century, when painters began to record great naval battles and famous ships, and the life of those who made a living from the sea. By the 19th century, with Europe at peace, the focus of interest in sea painting changed to marine landscape, including coves, cliffs and beaches. This splendidly evocative book looks at the sea in all its moos through the eyes of the great marine painters. Here, is is the stirring Resolution in a Gale, painted by Willem Van de Velde the younger, the serene beauty of Claude Lorraine's Embarkation of the Queen of Sheba, and the poignant symbolism of the Fighting Temeraire by J. M. W. Turner, greatest and most romantic of all seascapes.
