Albert Dunington (1860-1928)

`The Sands below the Pier, Whitby`

A familiar scene to anyone who knows Whitby. The swing bridge leading to the outer harbour and the sea can be seen in the distance, not so many sailing boats around these days, and a small steamboat can be glimpsed in the distance. Probably painted around 1900, and most of the buildings are still extant. Dunington was originally from Nottingham and would have been familiar with the work of Laura Knight and the Staithes group, an influence on many artists of his generation in style and subject matter. Painting is in its original gilt frame with new gold lined ivory mount.
