For some people, this is a shameful Socialist Realism episode, others perceive it as a community of artists working together in a particular place, which was Sopot, while some consider it to be Colouristic Modernism of the 1950s. The "Sopot School" term is a controversial and dubious subject, especially considering the fact that members of this artistic circle chose diverse directions for their further development. "A view of the sea" is an exhibition dedicated to the maritime subject in the works of a group of artists deriving from the so-called "Sopot School" circle.

If Hieronymus Bosch had been a diver, he would probably have painted like Włodzimierz Szpinger, this is what connoisseurs of the artist's works claim.

Sailing was not only a hobby but it was also viewed as an opportunity to emphasize one's social status. The 19th century was also marked by the beginnings in the development of photography. A new device was invented for recording of the continuously changing reality, for presenting of events and displaying new trends, including yachting.
