About: Twachtman specialized in making landscapes in an impressionist style. His active brush strokes convincingly convey the churning froth of the crashing waves on the rocky coast. The peril of such wild waves is made more apparent by Twachtman's decision to bring the waterscape right up to the edge of the foreground.
