The magic of the sea. Marine Solitude (1854) was painted by the Danish artist Anton Melbye (1818-1875). Melbye specialized in marine art, painting hundreds of seascapes during his life. And while most of them contain some activities and boats, he chose here to omit all human activities, and focus on the state of the sea when we are not present. The impressive waves are set against a sunrise or sunset, which strongly contrast with the dark clouds. The couple of seagulls, however, are not impressed and are searching for something to fill their bellies. If you look long enough at this work, it almost becomes meditative. Hearing the sound of the waves and the seagulls, mixed with the rising/setting sun which changes the sky by the minute. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #DanishArt #DanishArtist #DanishPainter #AntonMelbye #Melbye #MarineArt #Seascape #Solitude
