But for consolation here (added later) are some other great examples of artists who also were impressed and inspired by the stormy seas.
Uehara Konen (1878-1940)
Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) 1834
Hiroshige (1749-1858) 1853
Oscar Droege (1898-1982) very prolific German printmaker did many woodblock prints of the sea, calm and stormy. For every one roaming and combing the beach the mirroring effect of the back wash of the waves in last print is very realistic and skillfully executed. Droege was a keen observer living all his life near the North sea in Hamburg.
Clarence Alphonse Gagnon (Canadian, 1881 - 1942) "Heavy Sea". A neglected and hardly ever seen master piece by this Canadian painter. Besides trhe many paintings I know of only one other print by Gagnon.
Bror Julius Nordfelt (Am. 1878-1953) who had his finest woodblock printing year in 1906 as we'll see later.
Last but not least: Matthew Brown (American b.1958) New Hampsire printmaker in the Japanese tradition combining, tributing and connecting the classic (foamy waves Hiroshige) and the modern (rocks Droege, gulls Neumann). The wink at Hans Neumann (right) in perticular is very charming.
