Arts Everyday Living: The Call of the Sea—From Sunny Beaches to Moonlit Nights

Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947), The Beach, c. 1922, oil on canvas, Private Collection


The sea is an eternal inspiration, from French Early Modernist Pierre Bonnatd’s use of jewel-like colors in The Beach to Australian Elioth Gruner’s brilliantly lighted Tamarama Beach to German Romantic artist Caspar David Friedrich’s mysterious nocturne Seascape by Moonlight.
