Newhaven, a ferry port on the south coast of England, played its part during the war. Small craft sailed from here during the invasion of Normandy. Here, Forster depicts some of the inevitable consequences of the invasion. In this somewhat gloomy painting, the dark and broken vessels are silhouetted against the lighter colours of the beach.
