Description of the painting by Vincent van Gogh "The Sea in Saint Mary"


Vag Gogh often painted the sea. He was attracted by the beauty of the waves, which he could depict gracefully and impulsively, in the best traditions of impressionism.

The picturesque landscape of the famous author represents several layers of blue foaming waves, a turbulent stream of water and the power of the sea elements. Brushstrokes, applied in thick layers to the canvas, give the sea a rich, juicy appearance.

Depth, the sound of waves, the wind swinging boats - all this creates a certain atmosphere, excites the imagination. To some, the picture will seem bright and sunny, and to someone dark, foreshadowing a storm or storm. Vag Gogh managed to capture the diversity of those places, while preserving for the viewer some mystery, obscurity. The sky is portrayed as multifaceted and ambiguous as the waves rushing from side to side.

The work encourages the viewer to appreciate the beauty of the moment: the creator does not just paint the landscape, he conveys the heat of the sun better, air, the movement of water. That is why the "St. Mary's Sea" seems genuine, vibrant, and not just pictured. Snow-white sails bending in the wind make you believe in the authenticity of the moment, add naturalness and naturalness. Vag Gogh very competently combines the shades of the sky with water: so the picture seems whole, single, but the horizon does not merge. Yellowish-green oil paints give the work a special entourage and uniqueness.

The main and detail in the work is the position of the boats: they are located at different levels, moving away into the blue distance. Boats shaking in the wind are more reminiscent of the steps along which the viewer walks, being in the vast charismatic sea of ​​Saint Mary. Thus, the author makes some philosophical message in his work.
