LANDSCAPE PAINTING OF COASTAL WALES IN OIL ON CANVAS
Signed lower left “B.W. Leader”, the frame titling the work "Cambria’s Coast - B.W. Leader R.A."
Item # 609NPK10P
A bright and vivid work detailing the coastline of Wales, it is titled on the frame “Cambria’s Coast” and inscribed as such on the back of the stretcher bars as well. It would appear to be inspired by Leader’s 1911 work “A Fine Morning on the Sussex Coast”, a brilliant work that achieved that sold at Christies in 2007 (New York, Sale 1895, lot 192). The present example is a beautiful work exhibiting a bold and practiced brush and is executed in oil on canvas.
