The ocean has been a common subject for artists for generations, as the backdrop for everything from mythological stories, like Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, to social progress and enlightenment, like Gericault’s Raft of the Medusa. Here, a few ocean paintings to brighten your Monday morning – maybe these will inspire you to make a day of it at the beach yourself this weekend!Gifts of the Ebb Tide, Utamaro | Strawberry Moon Blog
