Abstract:

"It has been argued that true greatness in art is more likely to emerge from artistic constraint in the choice of subject than from freedom. The Renaissance painted the Bible, Monet painted water lilies, and Picasso painted people. Thomas Hoyne, living a thousand miles from the dangerous waters of the Grand Banks, constrained himself to recording with precise historical accuracy the iron men and the wooden sailing ships that took fish from the cold waters of the Atlantic." "He crafted a moment when "you are there," enduring images nowhere else recorded of a brave time in the history of America."--Jacket.
