Classicism   •   Claude Joseph Vernet @ Wikipedia

The works of the painter Clause Joseph Vernet, born in Avignon in 1714, mostly depict port and seafaring motifs. These motifs were in high demand in the 18th century. However, the peculiarity in the style of the artist lies in the panorama-like representation, in which the horizon is low and the sky is very wide. This gives the pictures a very realistic effect, which is intensified by the intensity of the coloring and the great appreciation of Lichht and Schatten.

The career Claude Joseph Vernet was promoted very early by his father, who was known as a decorator himself. He sent his son to experienced painters and enabled him to travel to the former capitals of artistic creation. After learning in Rome, among other things, he was called by the French king to his court to serve in the service of the state. Vernet got the task to portray the sea power of France in his works. The artist had the claim to make his works very truthfully. Thus, often scenes of everyday life and the work of the workers can be found on the paintings. It is even said that Claude Joseph Vernet once had himself tied to the mast of a ship in a terrible storm in order to feel better the adventurous and dangerous life on the sea.

The most famous paintings are the "Landscape with Castle Ruins" and "The Ports of France". © Meisterdrucke
