Bleu

In the native language of Joseph Vernet, which all these pieces are made by, is French. In French blue is bleu. Blue, in art, can represent water or sadness. In all of these pictures the main focus is water. Which when reflected by the sky, is blue.

I really love the detail Vernet put into this art piece. Joseph Vernet created this piece in his late career. I also love how he put his name into the rock by the tree.
Located in the Art Institute of Chicago, this piece represent four different times of day in one painting.
I really like how Vernet uses different shades of blue in the ocean. I really like the lighthouse which he incorporates in a lot of his pieces.

I really like this painting. It is my favorite of all of Vernet's paintings. I love the setting sun in the background of the sky with the lovely ocean as the main point of the art work.
