Painting - Oil On Canvas
Dramatic battle between sailing ships on the ocean. In this painting there is an obvious conflict between ships of the high seas. Ist early morning and the seas are calm. The clouds,fog and smoke make it dificult to see only the top mast and flags of the fourth ship in the battle scene. The nearest ship in the scene is tilting slightly to the left because of the recoil of a broadside. Smoke from that broadside can be seen projecting out over the water. The ship in the middle is shooting in both directions and caught between its two opponents. The ship in the far background is coming to join the fight. Dark shadows are cast upon the ocean waves by the huge ships to help dramatize the scene. A sailors life is a dangerous one for sure.
