Alexander McQueen - Oyster Dress (Spring/Summer 2003)
A number of gowns in Alexander McQueen’s “Transitions” collection of spring/summer 2003 appear to be poetic renderings of a disaster at sea. While a similar dress appeared colored like the plumage of a tropical bird, this gown of sand-colored organza recalls the mille-feuille ridging on the surface of a shell. The hem of the skirt, like the wavy lip of a giant mollusk, further emphasizes the seashell quality of the gown. But unlike Aphrodite, who was born in the foam of the sea and borne to shore on a scallop, McQueen’s beauty is a bruised pearl encased in a deconstructing oyster, the tumbled survivor of the violent action of waves.” Source: The Metropolitan Museum of Art
John Constable - Rainstorm over the sea [Seascape study with rainclouds] (c.1824-28)
"This spectacular oil sketch looking directly  out to sea is one of the most remarkable open air sketches that  Constable painted during his visits  to Brighton. He depicted a dramatic  sky, capturing the fleeting effect  of a rainstorm at sea, with  thunderous black clouds, and with a shaft  of sunlight breaking through  to light up the horizon on the left. […] In his biography on Constable, Andrew Shirley observed that  Constable’s sketches: ‘convey an extraordinary force of emotion’ and  that in this work in particular he captured ‘the transient rainstorm,  tremendous but with  a gleam of light, seized in a moment’ (Shirley  1949, pp. 22–21)." Source: National Gallery of Australia
