 	 "Victorian Cromer" Oil Painting By John Sutton
This beautiful Oil on canvas is By John Sutton, one of Norfolk's favourite living artists. John was born in Norfolk in 1935 and lives in Blakeney. This painting is entitled "In days gone by" Cromer c1900. It really does capture the atmosphere of this lovely seaside town in late Victorian times. There is lots going on. In the foreground is a young family, a little boy dressed in a sailor suit, holding a sailing boat. His sister wearing a straw hat, holding a bucket and spade. The father wearing a striped blazer and on his head a straw boater, Note the handlebar moustache. The mother is wearing a white summer dress with a large floral hat and carrying a parasol. Beside the groins is a larger group enjoying a picnic. At the foot of the cliff are five bathing machines, These would be pushed to the edge of the sea so the bather could step straight out of the water. Beside them are fishing boats, which still can be seen there today. To the right are people watching children taking Donkey rides. Behind that is the famous Cromer Pier which is still there now. The crowning glory of this picture is Cromer which has a magical look. The condition of this painting is excellent. It is signed John Sutton in the lower right hand corner. On the reverse is written "In days gone by Cromer c1900". It is in a gilt and gesso frame. Thank you for looking and for your time. If you have any questions, Please do not hesitate to contact me.
