Like many New Englanders, I long for the summer months when mindlessly strolling along the ocean shore, intent on finding treasures of sea glass, clam shells, and other primordial objects demands my full attention.
Seascape painting, in our long held tradition, seeks to capture this longing, or does it? While we currently might think of seascape painting in the same vein as sun and fun, historically this was not always the case.
Take for example, Theresa Bernstein (1890-2002). The Immigrants, 1923. This painting, captures the experience of traveling to America in steerage class in one of the many large ocean liners that arrived in the port of New York in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
During this lecture, I will share this story of Ms. Bernstein’s painting along with more contemporary views of the sea, including my own painting on exhibition in the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade.
