Shipwreck Survivors reaching the Coast

1793 - 1800. Oil on canvas Not on display

As an exaltation of the power of Nature, shipwrecks were a recurrent theme in eighteenth-century painting. An admired landscape artist, Pillement painted this canvas in Pézenas, the French village where he spent his last years. His depiction of the disaster may have been influenced by the wreck of the Spanish ship San Pedro de Alcántara in Peniche near Lisbon, which he recorded in a painting of 1786.
