Available for sale from Big Sky Fine Art; this original oil painting by Edward Duncan, dating from the nineteenth century.
The painting is presented and supplied in a nineteenth century ornate frame. The painted surfaces and canvas would benefit from some restoration, cleaning and conservation. Within the last 30 years the canvas has a replacement stretcher.
The painting is priced accordingly in recognition of the restoration work that is required.
Edward Duncan was apprenticed to Robert Havell the engraver and learnt first to be an engraver. He set up his own business and worked mainly on sporting themes and coastal scenes. He is acknowledged to have very good drawing skills, perhaps as a result of this early discipline and indeed all his works show great attention to detail and accuracy. He later became an accomplished artist, chiefly in watercolours, and was a member of the Old Water Colour Society and the New Water Colour Society. He exhibited prolifically, at both Water Colour Societies and also at the British Institute, the Royal Academy, the Victoria and Albert Museum and other major provincial galleries. His coastal scenes, often depicting ship wrecks, are among his best and most important works.
