Luce Center Label

Franklin D. Briscoe spent a great deal of time at sea, traveling between America and Europe. The ocean fascinated him, and his paintings are often based on his journeys. Briscoe painted this piece outside on a foggy day, using expressive brushstrokes to capture the subdued colors and hazy sunshine of the scene.
