Waters and sea

585 Discovered works of art
The waters and the sea are enticing pictures. Anyone who hangs a sea or river painting on the wall can always set out on a little journey and experience the fascination of water when looking at the picture.

The Swiss Ferdinand Hodler, also known as a painter of mountain landscapes, presents us the "Lake Geneva" as above-ground beautiful waters in bright blue and turquoise tones, which turn into a sky with numerous clouds. Trees, grasses and mountain ranges in the distance radiate a cheerful summer mood from the elevated viewpoint of the beholder.
Fascinating, almost mystical, William Turner paints "The Blue Rigi" on Lake Lucerne. The watercolor created in 1842 impresses with pasty shades, a relaxed atmosphere at sunrise and modern painting technique, which is why Turner is not considered groundless as a precursor of Impressionist style of painting. Hokusai presents water as an overwhelming force of nature. The famous Japanese representative of colored woodblock prints in the ukiyo-e style knows how to make the elemental force of water tangible in "The Great Wave off Kanagawa from the series 36 Views of Mount Fuji". Even Mount Fuji in the distance looks small and powerless. The Japanese focuses on a few colors. Therefore, this woodcut looks particularly powerful and rich in contrast.

Bodies of water can be reproduced exactly the opposite in art. Frederic Edwin Church shows a mountain lake embedded between high rock walls. No one disturbs the quiet and at the same time raw beauty of this sublime nature.
Painters have always devoted themselves to details of water. "The Way of the Seagull" by Richard Willis shows primarily turbulent, gray-blue sea at nightfall. A small seagull makes its way bravely from right to left along the whipped water. Felix Vallotton designs water in harmony with nature, while Plinio Nomellini emphasizes marine treasures in beguiling colors.
