This fine 20th-century marine scene depicts several vessels sailing under a vast sky at sunset. It’s a romantic portrayal, which alludes to nature’s power over man while simultaneously emphasising its abundant beauty.

The waves part and draw the eye along a rippling channel of light towards a horizon of graduated tints. The sailboats lean like visual markers along either side and provide us with an unbroken moment of sunlit bliss. 

The artist was a follower of widely-lauded Dutch painter Hermanus Koekoek (1815-1882) who worked in a manner befitting the great heritage of his nation’s iconic masters. 

Monogrammed RC and housed within a decorative foliate frame.
