Robert Moore, Marine Scene, Choppy Waters

Robert Moore, Marine Scene, Choppy Waters

This atmospheric marine scene by British artist Robert Moore (b. 1945) depicts several sailboats buffeted by the waves. It’s inspired by the old masters of yesteryear and rendered skilfully. In the foreground, the nearest boat rises as three figures wrestle with the sail. The waves crash over the bow as they fight against the strength of the sea.

Robert Moore is an accomplished marine painter and several of his works have sold through the leading auction houses including Christie’s and Bonhams.
