Michael Zeno Diemer - German 1867-1939

Freighter in heavy seas, 97 x 141 cms

The eye tends to read an image from left to right, so if a figure or element is placed on the left hand side, it tends to be seen more abruptly. In this painting it's appropriate, as it reinforces the image of a ship being battered by the waves. If a tranquil effect is desired, try placing the ship on the right side.
