This book can be savored not only for the magnificent reproductions of a vast array of maritime art, but also for what can be learned about what was in the mind of the artists at the time the paintings were set to canvas. For those who have an interest in shipping, the seashore or maritime history, there is a wealth of information and historical perspective provided by each artist. There's even a glossary of art and maritime terminology. This book will provide hours of relaxation and contemplation of places and times we formerly could only imagine.
