Rocks and Sea, by Charles Basing (1865-1933), Oil on Canvas
Basing is considered one of the finest romantic modernist American painters of the earliest XXth century. He would take liberties with his arrangements of complex compositions and dramatic tonal contrasts in order to heighten the dramatic quality of his work. His gestural brushstrokes of thickly layered pigment add texture and depth to the pictorial surface, enhancing its vibrant, lyrical quality.
He was particularly inspired by the natural, untamed beauty of the Atlantic seaboard, and often painted coastal scenes of Long Island and Cape Cod.
