Man challenges nature: Mighty ships, built from wooden planks and equipped with masts and sails, venture out into the open sea. They trade, wage war, discover the world. Art collectors in the Golden Age of the Netherlands in the 17th and early 18th centuries loved paintings showing the ships of their proud fleet fighting the forces of nature. Particularly dramatic seascapes were popular: a churning sea, clouds looming threateningly on the horizon, and in between, like nutshells, the extremely sloping sailing ships threatening to capsize. Is there hope, will the sailors be able to save their ship and their valuable cargo? Will they survive? A small rag of blue sky gives hope, but the cliffs are already threateningly close...

A master of marine painting was Ludolf Backhuysen, who was born in Emden. In 1650 he went to Amsterdam, the heart of the up-and-coming trading and naval power Holland. Painting was not in his cradle, first he worked in a trading house, but there he attracted attention with his beautiful writing. Apparently he taught himself to paint at an early age and loved the sea, the ships and the harbours of his new home. So he was apprenticed by two respected marine painters. Willem van de Velde the Elder, the most famous artist of the stormy seas and naval battles to this day, also influenced the work of the young Backhuysen. To his advantage, the van de Veldes soon moved to England and left a gap in the Netherlands. Backhuysen filled this gap in a brilliant way and soon made a name for himself with his lively, detailed naval paintings. After a few years he was the most important and popular artist in his profession. Even after his death - he died in 1708 at the age of about 77 - his works remained in great demand throughout Europe. It was not until the 19th century that interest in his seascapes waned.

Some of his extremely dynamic depictions of the stormy sea seem like journeys to the Hellmouth with a fiery red evening sky. Or is it lightning that flashes through the night? The merchant ships of the Dutch East India Company can be seen in his pictures as well as calm and detailed views of Dutch ports and the battles of the naval powers Holland and England. In addition to paintings, Backhuysen has also created entire series of prints that show the ships and their complicated rigging in finely engraved form. Although he is considered to be a dedicated marine painter, there are other motifs of his: he has created portraits of family members, some landscapes and above all self-portraits. On one of them you can see a sated gentleman with a longhaired wig in fine cloth and thread, looking at us attentively. He probably never went to sea, but Ludolf Backhuysen never let go of his longing for the sea. © Meisterdrucke
