"The Shipwreck" illustrates the seamless virtuosity with which Claude-Joseph Vernet was able to integrate the human figure into spectacular atmospheric settings. As a Dutch ship founders against a rocky, windswept coast, a series of dramatic vignettes play out in the foreground. Survivors climb ashore, lamenting their fate; the fortunate see to the injured and bereaved; precious cargo is salvaged. Vernet's invocation of the "sublime" (or "awesome" in modern vernacular) anticipates the apocalyptic landscapes of John Martin and the climactic violence of Karl Bryullov in "The Last Day of Pompeii."
