Anthony Van Dyke Copley Fielding, Harbour At Sunset

Anthony Van Dyke Copley Fielding, Harbour At Sunset

This exquisite light-filled landscape by Anthony Van Dyke Copley Fielding (1787-1855) captures the eminent beauty of our beloved isle in a manner only he could. The harbour is radiant, illuminated by a divine hand, as the sun sets amid a crescendo of graduated tints.

It’s classically inspired but rather than ruins, Copley Fielding gives us fishermen dragging their nets through the undulant mud. A rusted anchor, some wrecked driftwood, a chalky coastline - this is the England he loved and admired.

Copley Fielding was ours, a special talent that enriched the rugged British countryside with a sense of permanent tranquillity. While the industrial revolution was brimming with steam, he sought the calm mists of ancient valleys and headlands.

Signed in the lower left, dated, framed and glazed.
