Here She Comes, inscribed verso, watercolour on paper, signed L. Burleigh Bruhl. c1920.
Dimensions : Frame : 450mm x 555mm x 15mm. Image : 260mm x 368mm. Weight : 2.500kg net.
Condition/Notes : Good/Very Good. The watercolour on paper painting titled verso "Here She Comes" depicts a group of people awaiting the arrival of a sailing boat on a coastal jetty. The evening sky is filled with heavy clouds which are very well executed and dominate the scene, casting their shadows over the calm waters and setting the boat in a highlighted area. This style is absolutely typically of Bruhl and can be seen in many of his coastal studies (such as St. Michael's Mount in the Watford Museum - see the painting on this link : http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/yourpaintings/paintings/st-michaels-mount-26279). The location of this scene is currently unknown although the building on the hill in the far right looks very similar to the one in the Westcliffe Essex watercolour by Bruhl available in the Shop (go to this link). The painting is generally in very good condition with no foxing, moisture or marking and is clearly signed in the lower rh corner in the artist's usual manner. It is displayed in a complementary lined off-white mount which is also in good condition with light toning to the window edges. The sturdy plain gilt frame is in good condition and suits the style of the painting; backing board secured by points and sealed with gummed tape. "Here She Comes" is written in the centre and an old card label attached below which states "Copyright and Drawing Ac only 8 - 5 - 0 deleted, 5 - 5 - 0 deleted, No 5. "Here she comes" £3 - 3 - 0" which probably comes from the original frame backing. Rings and wire attached. An interesting and accomplished work by this well known artist.
