Seascape Near Les Saintes-Maries - Description

In 1888, Vincent van Gogh took a trip to the small fishing town of Saintes-Maries on the shore of the Mediterranean. Van Gogh had a great affinity for the sea, as his uncle Jan has been a rear admiral with the Dutch navy. In this painting, Seascape Near Les Saintes-Maries, the water is a study in turquoise, blue and white. Green highlights the bottom of the cresting waves. Highlights in bright orange and carmine appear in the water in the lower right, as well as the cresting waves. Three ships are visible: the closest to the viewer is large, with both a sail and rear rudder visible. Two more appear as distant shapes on the horizon. The sky is a slightly lighter tone of blue, shot through with white clouds. The sea is separated from the sky by a band of darker blue. It is unclear where the viewer is standing, as no edge of a dock or boat is present. Perhaps the viewer is simply standing on the water itself. This image is signed by the artist in bold red paint in the lower left corner. The artist was said to only sign images he felt were well-executed. Modern audiences agree Vincent van Gogh's appraisal of this work, as this image has become one of his most popular.
