Most Famous Sunset Paintings


Why would an artist choose to produce a painting of a sunset? A magnificent sunset, many people would say, is among the most stunning views you can witness.  The blending of hues as dusk falls may be tranquil and soothing, and the warm yellows, vivid reds, and flaming oranges in the scene all catch the attention of the eye and comfort the spirit.
