Note: In this dramatic painting Petrus van der Velden explores the themes of the sublime, a genre of painting which deals with subjects like the insignificance of humanity in the face of nature. "Storm at Wellington Heads" has all the classic elements of the genre. The foreground figures struggle against the overwhelming storm, and the painting is resolved in a series of oppositions of light and dark in the sea, sky, and rocky coastline.
