More about The Ninth Wave
The Ninth Wave refers to a nautical tradition that waves grow larger in a series up to the largest wave, the ninth wave. The painting depicts a large wave threatening to engulf five people hanging on to a debris of a wrecked ship. The warm tones of the sky reduces the overtones of the sea which makes it seem less menacing. The painting is now at the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg.
