By Beautiful Sea

December 2023
1min read

Among the multitude lured by the pleasures of the golden strand were artists. They came to paint the sea in all its moods and the people in their seaside humor—carelessly happy, lazily content. From an amplitude of possibilities the following pages present a broad sampling of what American artists have seen by the beautiful sea—and remembered for us with their brushes.

We hope you enjoy our work.
