I am offering for auction a superb early 20th century watercolour of shipping by the outer harbour at South Shields on the mouth of the river Tyne, in the north east of England. Painted by listed artist William Thomas Nicholas Boyce, 1858-1911, and dated 1905.
Condition. In good order. Please see pictures. The frame has wear.
William Boyce was born in Norfolk in 1857 and moved to South Shields, County Durham with his parents in 1872. His father was a master mariner and ship-owner, but William's first career was as a joinery apprentice, working later in a draper’s shop, before eventually becoming an artist, specializing in maritime subjects depicted in various climatic conditions often off East Anglia and various other coastal towns.
He lived and worked predominantly in the North East where he exhibited in venues locally becoming well established and successful in his own area. Other examples of his work can be seen at the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle, South Shields Public Library and Museum and The Sunderland Art Gallery.
Postage via DPD, UPS or Parcel force depending on country.
Please note. Frames and glass are delicate and can occassionally take a knock in the post. I wrap paintings very well but you bid on this lot with the understanding that you accept this small risk when bidding.
