Francis Danby (Irish, 1793-1861)

Sunset, daybreak, and moonlight

In the top two paintings, Danby uses dramatic light to power his grand landscapes; on the bottom, he uses a greenish, eerie light to soften an intimate woodland fairy scene.

1. Sunset at Sea After a Storm, 1824

2. Apocalypse, 1828

3. Oberon and Titania, 1832
