Description: This painting, by the marine artist William Lionel Wyllie (1851-1931), captures the moment when the storm is raging but the sun starts to shine. The smaller boats are thrown around in the rough water and the men on board these boats are attempting to keep control while sheltering from the storm. At the same time, a shaft of sunlight illuminates the hull of the ship.
Creator: William Lionel Wyllie
