The Beach At Trouville by Gustave Courbet, 1865.

Portuguese Carracks off a Rocky Coast by Circle of Joachim Patinir, has justly been labelled the earliest known pure marine painting. Maritime painting was a major genre within Dutch Golden Age; beach-scenes of the mid-17th century by Jacob van Ruisdael played a leading part in the development of Dutch realistic landscape painting. William Turner and Ivan Aivazovsky are considered the best Maritime painters. (Turner (1775-1851) and Aivazovsky (1817-1900) met in Rome, in 1842. Turner had just seen, at an exhibition, some paintings by Aivazovsky and got literally overwhelmed). [1]
