Catalogue Note

Southall visited Southwold on the Suffolk coast almost every year and sometimes more than once. In Golden Evening, Southwold he has depicted the town's famous pier, built in 1900, with the intricate attention to detail that reflects his training to be an architect almost half a century earlier. Southall chose to contrast the elegance of the fashionable families enjoying a cloudless summer day on the beach with a fisherman tending to his boats. Each of the figures is beautifully studied, typical of Southall's refined draughtsmanship.
