Andreas Achenbach's "Ships in a Storm on the Dutch Coast" and Richard Willis' "Mary Rose" are stunning works of art. Achenbach’s piece depicts several big fishing boats being ravaged by waves and wind. Willis’ work shows the Mary Rose in a dark storm and rough seas.
Achenbach painted interior landscapes as well as coastal landscapes during the late 1800s. His paintings are listed among some of the finest collections in the world such as The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Willis, a contemporary painter who served in the British Royal Naval Reserve during WWII, works primarily on maritime subjects. He served for a time on HMS Victory, Lord Nelson’s flagship, where he was allowed to paint in the Great Cabin.
