Bonaventura Peeters (Follower), Marine Scene With Ships & Stormy Waters

Bonaventura Peeters (Follower), Marine Scene With Ships & Stormy Waters

This drama-filled 19th-century marine scene depicts three ships battered by wild conditions. It’s in the manner of Flemish artist Bonaventura Peeters the Elder (1614-1652) who was a master at capturing oceanic theatrics. 

Here, the ships are thrown like corks as the violent waves rise, crash and fall within a rocky port with ruins. Two figures look on from a clifftop as the sailors cling on for their lives.
