A Walk On The Beaches Of Classical Artists

As the article "Stunning Beaches" was liked by many readers, I thought that it was a good idea for the Art section of this month to show these artworks.

It's very interesting to see how classical artists depict the beaches in their works, each one with his/her style and their way to see the world. In addition, watching these paintings is a curious walk through History.

Thank you for these. I was born and raised in a beach town, but have been away and landlocked for the past 10 years. This was like being home again.

It's curious Steph I was born and I had always lived in coastal towns and in homes in front the sea.

For me the sea is a vice, I love the peace that brings me watching the sea.

I found this blog while googling "Mary Cassatt and the Sea." I was in search of the artwork called Children Playing On The Beach but I really enjoyed this blog entry featuring other famous artists who used sea or beach themes in their works. I love sea and art so this is just perfect for me :)
