Dutch ships in a rough sea

Pieter van der Croos

Pieter van der Croos' painting shows the North Sea's agitated waves washing against a jetty on an overcast windy day. Various ships sail by, coping with the bobbing and rolling waters depending on their respective size. A small rowing boat is struggling in the foreground. A three-master, probably a merchant ship, is anchored off the jetty. The picture's silvery grey tonality reflects the weather's overall effect on the moist seaside atmosphere as well as creating the lively scene's sense of freshness. The small panel exemplifies the way in which Dutch landscape and marine artists made use of a reduced palette in the 1640s to convey an increased sense of naturalism, but also how perspective and pictorial depth could be rendered through the structural distribution of light and shade. In the right foreground waves darkened by the shade of a bank of clouds form the picture's repoussoir. On the left, the spray-crowned water is lit brightly whereas the sea takes on darker greys in the middle distance with a patch of sunlight on the horizon.
