Overview

This lavishly illustrated book pays tribute to the power of the sea, the men and ships that sail on it, and the generations of artists who have been inspired by it. Marine painting has charted the course of ship-building, of navigation, and of man's exploration of his world. It is a testament not only to the development of these areas but to man's bravery as well. A broad spectrum of art is represented, with emphasis placed on the past 200 years. Each historical period, theme, and school is exemplified with a total of over 130 illustrations. The awe-inspiring skill of these nautical artists will instill great appreciation in the viewer for a sometimes neglected but powerfully evocative genre.
