Product Description

A pair of very fine looking c1880 watercolours of coastal marine scenes by the renowned Victorian artist Thomas Bush Hardy.

It shows the French fishing entering and leaving Calais or Boulogne harbour, in wet and rough weather, with a steamship in the background. There are people on the pier watching the boat’s progress. Both the paintings are faintly signed T B Hardy in the lower left side of the watercolour. The pictures are panoramic, being long but not very tall. They have been mounted, framed and glazed. Condition is good, but the frames have a bit of wear and have been retouched. This, however, does not detract from the beauty of the paintings. On the back of the pictures is a label from the XXXX Gallery, that sold them in the 1970s

Thomas Bush Hardy (1842-1897) was a famous marine painter and watercolourist from Sheffield. He is known, primarily, for his works of vessels of ample size and sail area and professional fishing boats. He was a prolific artist and the watercolours are often heightened with body colour. He was particularly popular for his watercolours and as a result, these works are more widely collected and are considered by many to be the finer. He travelled in Holland & Italy. He exhibited at Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists, New Watercolour Society, Fine Art Society, Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Society of Painters in Oil & elsewhere. Examples are in many major collections, including the Victoria & Albert Museum & the British Museum.
