Dutch Boats in a Gale 1801

The oil painting entitled Dutch Boats in a Gale, painted with mastery by the English landscape artist Joseph Mallord William Turner, dates back to 1801. In the rendering, we can see some Dutch boats at sea during a windy day, and an imminent collision of two boats refers to the coming storm that approaches.

The third Duke of Bridgewater requested Turner do create a painting which would be later hanging next to one of the works of the marine artist Willem Van De Velde. The painting Ships on a stormy sea, by the Dutch artist, depicts the same subject, but Turner’s version has a more dramatic atmosphere, for there is more contrast between the tones, and the colors of the sea and the stormy clouds are much darker in his canvas. On top of that, Turner’s colliding boats do not exist on Van De Velde’s depiction.

The foreground of this painting is taken by waves and these two boats awaiting collision. The color used for the sail is the same as the one Turner used on the upper side of the clouds. This helps the composition to gain unicity. In the distance, we can see other boats, but their situation seems to be more peaceful than of the ones which are the focus of the rendering.

Even though the subject in this work is a marine during the imminence of a storm, Turner did not use the paint in an “Impressionist” way. He was part of the Romanticism, but the visible brushstrokes gave his work an air of prelude of the Impressionism. It is possible that he opted for a more traditional style for this work, given that it would pair the Ships on a stormy sea by Van De Velde.

The Romantics usually depicted nature as majestic and powerful as possible. This is evident in the Dutch Boats in a Gale. The clouds in the sky, as well as the tilted boat in the foreground, guide the viewers to the left side of the canvas. The massive rainy clouds on the left become clearer, less threatening, and lighter on the right. The relatively black waters of the sea pull the viewer’s attention to the bottom of the canvas, but the huge dark-grey cloud that occupies the whole upper left corner manages to catch the attention, giving movement to the composition.
