William Miller Frazer, Hickling Broad, Norfolk

William Miller Frazer, Hickling Broad, Norfolk

This beautiful 20th-century oil on canvas by Scottish artist William Miller Frazer (1864-1961) depicts a sun setting across Hickling Broad in Norfolk. Its warm graduated tints shift from yellow to ochre - its fire dramatised with impasto. Note the daubs on the water to suggest reflections. Quickly added to capture a feeling, an absorbing moment in a tranquil setting. The style is reminiscent of the Impressionists.

Frazer trained at the Royal Scottish Academy and remains its longest consecutive exhibitor. His works are held in major galleries across Scotland.

Signed, dated verso, and framed.
