Alexandre Marcette's painting "Bringing in the Net" describes fishermen in a small boat off the shore as they draw in their net. Although the subject of men fishing seems commonplace, the grand scale of Marcette's painting lends this scene a dramatic quality. The cool blue ocean and cloud-filled sky are so vast in scale that they overwhelm the landscape, the fishermen, and the sailing vessels that populate the water.
