Condition/Notes : The watercolour and gouache on paper painting of Whitby Harbour is in very good condition with good colour and no foxing or damage. The painting depicts the harbour and the Old Town with the bridge which preceded the present day swing bridge which was built in 1908/09. The painting is signed in the lower rh corner in the artist's usual manner although he often signed in capital letters. He has also titled the painting "Whitby" in the lower lh corner. Edward Nevil flourished between 1880 and 1900 and has created several similar scenes of Whitby and Staithes and general maritime coastal scenes. The painting is displayed within a granite coloured conservation mount which is also in good condition. The gilt frame is in good condition with light scratching in places and backed with a hardboard sheet. Framer's label is attached which states that the frame has been glazed with acrylic for safety reasons which accounts for the quite light weight of the frame. Rings and cord attached. An interesting historical painting signed and titled by this well known Victorian artist.
