John O'Shea, American, (1876–1956)

Raging Sea

Oil on canvas
36 x 40 in. (91.44 x 101.6 cm)
Gift of Barbara and William Hyland
Accession Number: 1991.278

The quiet lower half of the composition, where the viewer is standing, adds to the drama of the exploding surf. The moment is literally caught in mid-air. With typical deftness of color, O'Shea contrasts the warm tones of the breaking waves with the cold blues of the ocean beyond.
