Product Description

An interesting and unusual watercolour painting by the British artist Charles William Adderton (1866-1944) of a Norwegian Fjord, with a church and warehouse surrounded by snow covered hills.

The painting is a departure from the artist’s usual work, which tends to cover the north of the UK. The warehouse building is probably related to the fishing industry, as it is built on stilts to allow access at different states of the tide. The shape of the church is typically Scandinavian. The painting is in very good condition, having been mounted and glazed in a quality frame. The frame has a couple of bits of gesso beading that have fallen off, in the past.

C.W. Adderton was an accomplished watercolourist, landscape painter and yachtsman born in Nottingham. He attended Scarborough School of Art studying under Albert Strange, exhibiting near Derby in 1884 and 1902. He worked briefly (1894) from a Scarborough studio, but by 1920 he was in Nottingham and it was while here, that he exhibited his greatest number of paintings at the Nottingham City Art Gallery (226 works in all). He also exhibited 7 paintings at the Royal Academy. He is also recorded in the Dictionary of Victorian Painters as having exhibited at the Suffolk Street Gallery and at The New Watercolour Society. The latter later became the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours (RI) and the former became the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA). C.W. Adderton's best-known work was exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1895 and includes ‘Noonday’ and ‘Evening Light’, ‘Early Spring’ and ‘Gust at Sea’.
