A Mesdag as it is meant to be. A dynamic scene of considerable dimensions with a rough sea, an imposing sky and various sailing vessels, large and small. This large canvas is a perfect example of the natural and atmospheric palette so typical for paintings of the The Hague School-artists, done in broad brushstrokes but also with an eye for detail.

Mesdag was one of the leading figures of the The Hague School. In 1870 he experienced his first great succes when he was awarded with a medal at the Paris Salon. Mesdag was fascinated by the sea and he remained faithful to this subject the whole length of his career. Mesdag is the Dutch marine painter par excellence.
