Vernet’s A Shipwreck in Stormy Seas can be seen on Rusts shelter in North Lodge Park, Cromer, overlooking the sea

Claude-Joseph Vernet, 'A Shipwreck in Stormy Seas', North Lodge Park

An imaginary scene, framed with the feel of a theatre set, this work by Claude-Joseph Vernet is an assault on the senses. The beauty and terror of the sublime collide, and to step inside this painting is to be confronted with unimaginable horror.
