Simon de Vlieger: A Calm Sea

Simon de Vlieger

A Calm Sea, 1642

“I love this picture. The early morning light and misty atmosphere are exquisitely done and the contrast between the very dark foreground and the pale fading background create a great depth to the painting. We don't see the sun but, we sure know it has risen by the corona around the dark tree on the right. Simply a wonderfully peaceful and beautiful work.”
