Atocha painting: "Atocha Meets Her Fate," by Ralph Curnow (2009). 24" x 20". A dark and dramatic rendering of the Atocha's final hours in a storm-tossed sea from a rear perspective showing the Madonna and Child on her vividly painted stern and her wind-battered flag and banner atop her rigging, the center mast broken off and languishing in a wave that is engulfing the entire front of the ship, and a sister-galleon with similar fate off in the distance. As usual, Curnow's waves and water are extremely realistic, a real challenge for most artists.
