Curator’s Choice: A Voyage through the History of Seascape – Wed 20 Nov 2019

The sea and maritime subjects have featured in art works since antiquity, including paintings, etchings, tapestry and pottery – whilst these images were mostly used to form part of a narrative, it wasn’t until the Renaissance period – and the emerging popularity of the landscape genre – that seascapes became more prominent in paintings. Join Curatorial Assistant Fiona Green as we explore the history of this genre from the Dutch Golden Age through to the 20th century, using paintings in the gallery as examples, as well as exploring different techniques and the stories that artists have chosen to tell over the years.
