Product Description

A very fine looking oil painting on board of a view of Dover Harbour, with the White Cliffs in the background, by the renowned Victorian artist Thomas Bush Hardy.

The painting, which dates around 1880 shows a choppy sea on the coastal approach to the harbour, with figures standing in front of cottages, as a fishing boat leaves the harbour. The view is from the western part, around the Great Fall area, with the Barracks just visible behind the cottages. The edge of the shore and path is strewn with equipment and fishing gear and the two lighthouses are visible behind. The painting has been executed in a similar way to his marine watercolours, with a loose hand and a very deft touch for the details. The painting has been roughly signed in the lower left corner, but is recognisable if you know his paintings, in the same way as his style of work. The painting has been taken out of its old frame and remounted framed and glazed, in order to protect it. The new glass is non reflective, so does not take anything away from the painting. Condition is very good. The old frame is available, should the buyer want it.

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 these works are more widely collected than the rarer oils. 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.
