Max Roeder, German 1866-1947


Iphigenie, 100 x 125cm

This work, by the symbolist painter, Max Roeder, combines receding horizontal and vertical lines - waves and clefts in the cliffs. The white figure looking out to sea seems to be echoed in negative in the shadowy sea cave.

Robert Henri - American 1865-1929


Rocks and Sea - Monhegan Island, 20 x 25 cm

In earlier posts we discussed the idea of framing the sea with rocks on either side, to avoid a lopsided composition with a vertical element on one side, and a horizontal one on the other. In this work, it appears as if the mass of rock on the right side was added later, for this reason.

Mauritz Frederick Hendrick de Haas 1832-1895
