Christ on the Sea of Galilee by Eugene Delacroix. Delacroix treated this subject several times in 1853-54, and this series of canvases can be divided into two parts: those with rowboats and those with sailboats. The version in Baltimore belongs to the latter category. It is doubtless to this work that the artist was alluding when he noted, May 29, 1854: "Worked a little on the Christ on the Sea of Galilee: impression of sublimeness and light". The marine element is of prime importance here and we can see in it reflections of the observations made by Delacroix during his seaside visits to Dieppe in 1851, 1852, and 1854.
