Edward Moran 1829-1901

Top: Shipwrecked
Bottom: Sailing in Rough Seas

Edward Moran's works invoke a poetic mood. Something to aim for in painting any subject.

In Shipwrecked, the white lighthouse represents hope, and is contrasted to the dark waves on the left.
Moran sets off the lighthouse, and the white waves breaking on it, by placing an area of grey rain behind.
