Painting the Sea

2 x 52' (GER, ENG subs)
The sea is a place of imagination, longing and memory. Yet for others the sea is a mirror of the soul. And, not to forget, the sea is also a place of war, power and conquest.

Hardly any other motif is as popular and varied in painting as the open sea. The two-part documentary plunges into popular maritime motifs of fine art throughout the centuries and takes the spectators on a journey through regions and the political and cultural history of the continent Europe. We will be travelling along Europe's seaports, which served as inspiration for the painters: From Hamburg to London and Le Havre, from Cádiz to Étretat and beyond.
