This tranquil early 20th-century seascape by Nicholas Percy Fox (1870-c.1943) is a masterclass in subtle gradients to create mood. The last rays of the evening sun drift behind clouds, producing a deep orange glow through wispy verticals. A ship’s sail, near silhouetted, juts through the layers drawing emphasis to the shifting tones.

The work is reminiscent of the tonalists who sought to convey a mood by paring down a composition. They often used muted colours and emphasized feeling rather than detail. Perhaps Fox was an admirer of this school.

The size of this painting amplifies its peaceful virtues as it washes over you - it’s akin to a gentle Rothko.
