A seascape painting is simply a work of art in which the ocean or major body of water is one of the central elements of the work. Falling under their own genre seascapes are a close cousin to marine and maritime paintings which focus more on ships or other manmade objects in a narrative composition. Seascapes depict a view of the sea or coastline typically without figures; they tend to invite the viewer towards an emotional or visceral response.
The seascape genre is a broad category in which the sea and therefore nature itself is the primary subject. A painting of a coastal shore is an example of a traditional seascape, though such a work might feature a sailboat or lighthouse in the distance along the horizon line. The minimal depiction of ships, people, and manmade objects in a seascape is meant to serve as reminders of man’s insignificance in relation to the larger world.
