British School, Nocturne With Coastal View

British School, Nocturne With Coastal View

This early 20th-century nocturne captures a coastal view under a dense overcast sky. A wisp of light illuminates a resting sea while fisherfolk drag in nets and return home.

It’s an interesting piece with a near-monochromic palette. Clearly the work of an accomplished hand.

Held in a gilt frame and glazed.

Medium: Pastel on paper
Overall size: 14½” x11 ½” / 39cm x 29cm
Year of creation: c. 1930
Condition: Artwork presents well. Frame with some light wear.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
