It brings together a great and diverse collection of artworks from 1814 to current day, showing the ocean from differing opinions and feelings. The works are exhibited in a way that allows the viewer to stand back and take in the ocean from different perspectives. The exhibition ranges from classical works such as 'Sunrise' by Claude Monet which focuses on the calm, serene feeling created by the ocean and is painted in cool colours which are typical of the ocean, through to modern artworks that are painted to highlight political issues important to the artist. Throughout the exhibition the theme is maintained so the audience gets to see the way in which the ocean can take on different images from being wild and scary to peaceful and calm.

All the selected artworks capture the beauty and mystery of the ocean. They relate to each other so the viewer is able to understand the message being conveyed by the artist, the effect the artwork has due to the way it is structured, the mood or feeling of the artist and also how over decades the theme of the ocean is still being enjoyed.
