Catalogue Note

With green hills rolling down to a pale grey sea under a bright but overcast sky, the present seascape is typically English; there are no bold mediterranean light effects to be rendered here. Yet it is an invitingly tranquil scene, and the green chair in the foreground offers a tempting seat to take in the view and watch the sailing boats glide across the water.

Edward Fahey was a watercolourist in landscape, portraits and genre. He studied painting at the Royal Academy on returning from three years travelling in Italy between 1866-69. He was elected a member of the Royal Institute of British Watercolourists in 1872 and exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy and Royal Hibernian Academy.
