"Seaport by Moonlight" is a painting by French artist Claude Joseph Vernet, created in the mid-18th century. The painting depicts a seaport at night, with ships docked along the quay and the moon shining down on the scene.

In the painting, Vernet has created a peaceful and romantic atmosphere, with the still waters of the harbor reflecting the moon and the stars. The use of light and color is also striking, with the soft, glowing light of the moon casting a gentle and peaceful light over the scene.

The painting is notable for its picturesque and romantic content, as it reflects the taste for landscapes and seascapes that was popular during the 18th century. Through his depiction of the seaport, Vernet sought to evoke a sense of beauty and serenity, and to encourage viewers to appreciate the natural world.
