Humboldt Current1951-1952 by Max Ernst

"Humboldt Current is dedicated to a cold current in the Pacific Ocean. Ernst placed the canvas on top of a wooden board during painting and allowed the grain to become part of the composition. Thus Nature herself has a direct hand in the work. The current gleams coolly in the nocturnal sea – accompanied across the water by a full moon that makes the painting feel reminiscent of the Romantic era."
