Peter Cosslett
Seascape Moonlight with Crashing Waves Vintage British Oil Painting

1980 Circa

About the Item

Seascape Moonlight with Crashing Waves Vintage British Oil Painting Art measures 20 x 16 inches Frame measures 24 x 20 inches This painting depicts a serene and dramatic coastal scene under a moonlit sky. The full moon, partially obscured by wispy clouds, casts a silvery light across the turbulent ocean waves and rocky shoreline. The waves crash against the dark, jagged rocks, creating white foam that glistens in the moonlight. The reflection of the moon on the water adds a sense of depth and tranquility to the composition. In the distance, a shadowy landmass can be seen, adding to the painting's sense of vastness and mystery. Peter Cosslett was born in Cardiff in 1927. Cosslett started his working life in the merchant marines, where he first became fascinated with the power of the sea. After the war he took up painting as a pastime. Cosslett has made coastal subjects very much his speciality; the sea crashing over the rocks, long lazy waves breaking on the beach, moonlight glinting through the surf. In the chaos of modern life, these images represent escapism and relaxation and inevitably have an enduring appeal as rich oils on canvas.
