About The Sea

The Sea by Aleksander Gierymski is a landscape painting from 1891.  It is an oil on canvas painting, and measures 62 cm x 83.5 cm.  The painting depicts a beach scene, with orange/brown shore line in the foreground, and a dark blue sea in the background, with some small waves and white-caps.  There is a white building off in the distance on the far left.  On the beach there is a sole blue row boat, sitting in a shadow.

Gierymski, a Polish painter of the late 19th century, was known for his realism style and mastery of landscapes. This particular painting has been featured in the National Museum in Warsaw, highlighting its significance as an iconic work of art. It also reflects Gierymski’s love for nature and fascination with landscapes. His paintings were often inspired by actual locations, but he also took creative liberties to capture the essence and mood of what he saw.
