Edwardian Boats

Sort by

This collection of watercolour paintings we have for sale from an unsigned Edwardian sketchbook, watermarked 1911, depicting mainly boating and nautical scenes, with some additional images of a seventeenth century manor house and its gardens. The focus is certainly on the sailboat – be it a yacht, canoe or the occasional pairing with a steam powered tugboat – and a setting that varies between small, local shipyards and large, expansive harbours. Summery and airy, with an Impressionistic approach to the chromatic variances of light on water, sky and grass, the works in this collection are a visually sumptuous array of atmospheric colour and geometric nautical line.
