`The Estuary at Sunset`
Frederick Grimsdale c.1900
A delightful impressionist oil depicting an estuary sunset by listed Liverpool painter Frederick Grimsdale c.1900. This is probably a scene somewhere in the Wirral area, perhaps the Mersey or the Dee estuary. As Grimsdale lived in Hoylake from 1894, I would put my money on the Dee nearby. A very atmospheric painting, the lone figure and solitary boat give a great sense of space. Nicely painted - the lively impasto in the sky area opposing the softer technique depicting the beach. Some craquellure, but painting has been cleaned and revarnished so is stabilised. Good period gilt swept frame- glazed and ready to hang.
Frederick Grimsdale was a Liverpool painter who exhibited between 1892-1908, notably on 14 occasions at the Walker Gallery in Liverpool. Lived in Liverpool and later in Hoylake, near Wallasey,Cheshire.
