19th Century Watercolour by Henry Barlow Carter

This dramatic marine watercolour shows a sailing ship about to be dashed against the rocky shore. Looking at this fine little painting, one could be forgiven for assuming that this is by JMW Turner, such is the quality and drama created by a few most skilful artists. A superb little painting in totally original condition, painted around 1840. Original gilt gesso frame with grey mount. Size: 13cm by 18cm Henry Barlow Carter was born in Scarborough in 1795, obviously this a wear he picked up his detailed knowledge of marine subjects for which he is best known in fact, storms and shipwrecks were a speciality. He spent sometime in The Royal Navy before moving to Hull and marrying. He became a master of an Art School. He exhibited 1827 and 1830 at The Royal Academy, The British Institution and The Royal Society of British Artists. He carried on teaching an drawing until 1862, retiring to Torquay and died in 1867. His Sons Joseph Newington Carter 1835-1871 Vandyke Carter were both artists. Examples of Henry Barlow Carters work can been seen at the Victorian Albert Museum and also in Plymouth.
