John Martin contemporary paintings have been published in several modern art textbooks. His paintings have also featured in the Tatler Magazine, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Times.

Brian Sewell, Art Critic of The Evening Standard said of John Martin ' If you dropped him down a drain he'd paint an affectionate picture of drippage and the moss, and work wonders with the grid and its shadows'

In addition to Red Rag British Art Gallery John Martin art work has been exhibited at other leading British Art Galleries. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the John Martin artist studio and like all Red Rag British art and Contemporary art it can be shipped worldwide.

Today is no exception you will find Red Rag British Art Gallery has an extensive collection of Seascape art and paintings by leading contemporary artists.

Human beings have always had an intimate relationship with the water. Given the amount of the earth’s surface which is covered in water and the often unpredictable and life-changing nature of the sea, it is little wonder that seascapes have been such a popular subject for so long and no surprise that seascape paintings have an important place in the history of art.

Seascape paintings have a long history in both the Eastern and Western worlds.The walls of homes have been adorned with seascape paintings since the art of the secular painting first began to overtake religious works in numbers and importance.

As a country with an extensive coastline, paintings of seascapes have always had a special attraction to British artists. All the seascape paintings at Red Rag showcase the talent of British painters and their ability to depict changing light on water and rapidly altering climatic conditions. Many of the British artists who have painted these seascape paintings are also talented landscape painters, or worked in other genres as well as seascapes, such as still life or portraiture.
