Why We Love It

Off Sandy Hook captures the drama of the storm and the devastating effects it had on the fleet of ships that unfortunately crossed its path. The awesome power of nature is readily apparent, and Moran renders it with both drama and precision.

The Value

Marine paintings such as this one are highly collectible. Edward Moran enjoyed a fine reputation during his lifetime. His scenes of New York Harbor and its surrounds are his most sought after works. This example, with the high drama of the stormy sea, is in excellent condition and has its original frame.
