"When I was a small child growing up in Ocean City, NJ, my grandparents were big on my brothers and I attending Sunday school and church every Sunday. As a 7 or 8 year old, I found the sermons to be rather boring and always looked forward to the closing of the service.
"However, occasionally in summer when the heat was unbearable, and as there was no air conditioning, church service would be scheduled for the Music Pier. Protruding into the ocean off of the boardwalk, one could see the swells going by the window and hear the crashing of the waves on the pilings below. I never found the church service boring on these days. I would fantasize that we were all on a ship." -- Edward Gordon
The painting featured within "The Music Pier" is "Storm on the Sea of Galilee" by Rembrandt. This original masterpiece was created in 1633 and was the only seascape painted by the artist. Rembrandt painted this work in a period when he mostly made portraits in commission. He may have felt he needed the expressive space that a history piece had to offer.
