About this object

Pictured on the right is a cove with a curving rocky coast from which cliffs rise. At the left foreground is a single large rock rising from the sea. The right foreground has a cluster of rocks from the edge of the cove. In the middle distance are two rowboats with several people in each. In the far distance near the horizon is a small sailboat. The sea is very blue. It appears calm in the distance, but the waves crashing against the shore are more defined.
