Using loosely handled paint and sweeping brushstrokes, the expressionist painter Mané-Katz creates an atmospheric seascape, conjuring up the drama and movement of a small boat tossed by the waves. Mané-Katz was born in the Ukraine in 1894 to an Orthodox Jewish family and originally intended to be a Rabbi. In 1913–1914 he studied alongside Chaïm Soutine in Paris. Influenced by Rembrandt, the Fauves and, briefly, by Cubism, he returned to Ukraine after the outbreak of the First World War and was appointed professor at the Academy after the 1917 revolution.
