Description of Work:
“An active coastal marine of a stormy day, a record in grays, greens and the red-browns of weathered rocks, relieved by the tossing white of foam. The rocky outposts of the coast appear low in the right foreground, partly submerged, and long lines of combers roll in from the left and somewhat forward, a cold green, which tinges their white breaking crests. The horizon seems near, under the dense rain-clouds and saturated atmosphere, the clouds a violet-gray and displaying rifts which promise, but fail to reveal, glimpses of a blue beyond.”
