What are seascape paintings?
Seascape paintings are artworks that depict scenes of the sea and the surrounding coastline. They typically feature ocean waves, beaches, cliffs, rocky outcrops, and other natural elements found along the coast.
Seascape paintings have a long history, dating back to ancient times, and have been produced by artists from many different cultures and artistic traditions. They are often associated with the genre of landscape painting, which seeks to capture the beauty and majesty of the natural world.
Seascape paintings can range in style from realistic depictions of the sea and coastline to more abstract and impressionistic representations. Some famous examples of seascape paintings include "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" by Hokusai, "Seascape, Isle of Wight" by J.M.W. Turner, and "Starry Night Over the Rhône" by Vincent Van Gogh.
Seascape paintings have a wide appeal and are enjoyed by many people for their ability to evoke feelings of peace, tranquility, and awe in the face of the vastness and power of the sea. They are also popular among collectors and art enthusiasts, with many famous examples selling for millions of dollars at auction.
Our seascape collection is mostly comprised by the very talented Marko Klomp. Most of them are from his Left Behind Series.
