    Maritime art has been around almost since the dawn of boating thousands of years ago.  However, it did not become a more fully developed genre until the 15th century with Dutch painters at the height of Dutch naval power.  This style was later followed by French and English painters.

    In the 18th century the Romantic period saw marine painting rejoin the mainstream of art, although many specialized painters continued to develop the "ship portrait" genre.  By the late 1800's the beach was no longer considered purely a place for work, it was regarded as a source of pleasure and enjoyment.
