Catalogue Note

We are grateful to Robert Jones for his kind assistance with the cataloguing of the present work.

‘He knew what it was to be at sea – entirely and totally – his paintings carry with them a ship-feeling, … pitching and tossing and a passing of lighthouses and other ships and a blinding of spray, and a vastness of sky which somewhat seems above and below.’

Jim Ede, Kettle’s Yard, A Way of Life, Cambridge, 1984, p.214.
