DRAMATIC ENCOUNTERS / FACING UP TO THE SEA

The story of an unforgettable meeting is always a gift for artists and writers alike. This well-illustrated weekly series will bring us face to face with paintings, poetry and fiction in which fame, beauty, myth, history and the human spirit bring people together in such dramatic circumstances that they, and we, are left thinking that never before have we seen, or read, anything quite like it.


Christ sleeping through the storm is the starting-point for this David-and-Goliath stand-off as awesome odds are faced down by faith and fearlessness. Tintoretto, Rembrandt, Delacroix, Caspar David Friedrich, Monet, Turner, Pissarro and Lowry breast the waves with Defoe, Coleridge, Melville, Stevens, Hemingway and Eliot.
