Marine Art

The lure of foreign places, the desire to see the world or the challenge of facing the dangers to be found at sea – all these sentiments are part of the romance of seafaring.  And it is the romance of seafaring that often draws people to marine art- even those with no particular connection with sailing or the sea.

Marine art is important just for the pure joy of its beauty.  However, it also is important in its role as a portal into history.  If a painting or print interests someone in ships and seafaring, that person is one step closer to learning about maritime history and appreciating our maritime heritage.
