Thomas Bush Hardy R.B.A. (1842-1897) - Off Calais
  • Thomas Bush Hardy R.B.A. (1842-1897) - Off Calais

    The port of Calais is visible in the distance with many people on the piers viewing the choppy English Channel. Thomas Bush Hardy lived with his family in Boulogne between 1877 and 1880. This Northern French town is only 25 miles from Calais which meant this coastline was used for a lot of Hardy's artistic works in the 1870s and 1880s.


    Medium: Pencil and watercolour on paper.


    Signed and dated lower right 'T.B. Hardy 1884, Off Calais', 19.5 x 30.5 cm, framed.


    Provenance: Phillips Sale 8 November 1993, lot 71.
