"Ent. From Joseph Vernet C.1780 - Storm On An Italian Coast"In its charming original frame with grape leaves and bunches of grapes, this Italian Coastal Navy is in a pure original state. The brightness of the sky, the stormy hues of its clouds laden with water highlight the Genoese tower, perched on its rocky outcrop. The fishermen in the foreground have the movement and the colors of the composition of Joseph Vernet or Lacroix de Marseille. The vertical format is very original for this type of composition at the end of the 18th century. This strictly original set has only been cleaned since its creation.
