From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Slave Ship, J. M. W. Turner (1840)
'Marine arts' can also be used as a blanket term for nautical skills such as maritime archaeology, as in the College of Marine Arts.

Marine art or maritime art is any form of figurative art (that is, painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture) that portrays or draws its main inspiration from the sea. Maritime painting is a genre that depicts ships and the sea—a genre particularly strong from the 17th to 19th centuries.[1]
