Underwater Marine

Four Leaping Sailfish and Halfbeak, 24 x 43 inches.
Bonefish, Four Bones up with the Tide.

Another sub-genre of marine art is the underwater marine.  
The American artist and illustrator Stanley Meltzoff (1917-2006) was a master of this type of scene, skillfully combining wild-life painting and underwater seascape. He was probably the originator of this genre.
