About

David James, 1853-1904 was one of the leading painters of seascapes in the late 19th century, and was known as 'Master of the wave". His skill in painting waves is masterfully demonstrated here in the crisp blue wave about to break on the rocky Cornish shore. The rocks in the background, known as the Armed Knight are steeped in Celtic history and lead off the coast towards Long Ships Lighthouse, the smoke from which you can see on the horizon.
