Fisherman at sea | Turner


       The painting "Sea Fisherman" is a painting by the painter Turner in 1796. The oil paintings are now in the Tate Gallery in the UK.

        The location of the fishing boat in the oil painting is the Isle of Wight, a large island in the city of Portsmouth outside the southern coast of England. Painter Turner visited the island in 1795 and painted a lot of sketches and watercolors about the coast and included it in the "Wright Island Sketch Collection", but no sketch can match the painting. Until recently, people have thought that a series of white rocks on the left side of the screen is the famous Neddles reef group on the western end of the island.

        Turner is known for his ability to portray the subtle relationship between light and air. And persistently pursue the mysterious goal with his unique style.

        "Sea Fishermen" is the first work exhibited by Turner at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Annual Exhibition.

“The ship floats and sways naturally on the sea, and the water ripples and the effect is realistic.” In the exhibition of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, the painting was praised for its naturalistic characteristics. Signs of the "Turner" vortex structure have appeared on this early oil painting.

        The whole picture is dominated by dark and dark tones, and the center of the image is locked to the left of the center of the picture by the characteristics of light. "The sun struggles to pull open the clouds and suppress the light that shines out of it. Unfortunately, it can only illuminate a small piece of water. The sea has an unfathomable mouth and roars out of the raging waves." The heart of the viewer, as the boat under the sun sways all the way. The boat occupies an important position of the picture, but it is consciously suppressed in color and brightness.
