John Singer Sargent, Atlantic Storm, 1876

Photobucket
Heavy swell viewed from the back of a steamer crossing the Atlantic; he was only twenty when he painted this. Very dashing, with striking perspective, but one senses that this is a painter who is not good at conveying a sense of movement. This was shown in one of the Sunday papers yesterday in connection with an exhibition that is being held about his sea-paintings at the Royal Academy in London.
