Jacob Maris: 'A Beach'

Explore the paintings

Maris conveys a powerful sense of isolation in this image of a lone fisherman on a wind-swept beach. The only other signs of human presence are two empty boats pulled out of the water onto the sand. The top two-thirds of the canvas are given over to scudding clouds.
