Hondartza Fraga @ Manchester Art Gallery

25 September 2015 - 25 September 2016

A seascape is a work of art that depicts a view or a representation of the sea. However in the Dutch seascapes of the 17th century, the sea is often only a backdrop to scenes of shipping, naval conflict and trade. The paintings celebrate not the sea but the military and economic power of the Dutch Republic.
This display of drawings, animation and photography by artist Hondartza Fraga is a contemporary response to the seascapes in The Dutch at Sea exhibition. These imaginary sea views explore our understanding of the sea, and give the focus of a seascape back to the sea.
