– Auction catalog describes the painting as “A coastal scene whose entire being is an expression of power, power of movement and volume in the mighty sea, of majestic immobility in the massive mounds of a sheer and broken coast. At left the coast, high, gray, iron-red, mistily green ; to right the slow tremendous sea, gray, white, greenish, dull blue; over all the gray vapor of a lead-hued sky. Gulls and a distant sail.”
