Runswick Bay, North Yorkshire, watercolour on paper by Sam Burden. Signature not visible but probably concealed by mount. Framed and glazed. c1985.

Condition/Notes : Very good. The watercolour study of Runswick Bay by Sam Burden is in very good condition with good strong colours and no damage or moisture. This painting is very similar to the previous watercolour study of Runswick Bay which was sold on this site 10/06/2013 but from a slightly different angle and including the beach to the rh side and more details of the house - please view that painting at this link. The dimensions are also very similar. The studies have been completed at the same time of year but this painting is in the early evening with a slight reddish tone to the sky. The gulls are flying around and standing on the rooftops but there are no boats in the Bay. People can be seen on the beach. The painting is typical of the work of this very well-known artist but without a visible signature; as was the case with the previous painting, the signature was partly obscured by the mount and I suspect that it has been completely concealed by the mount in this framing. As the frame is very well sealed I do not wish to open it. The double mount layout has Arctic White coloured outer, Buttermilk inner and an 8mm wide Arctic White surrounding section midway between the window edge and the outer mount board creating an attractive surround to the painting; the mounts are also in very good condition. The speckled gilt frame with blue lined inner edge is in good condition with light wear; hardboard backing secured with arrow points and sealed with 50mm self-adhesive framing tape. A gold coloured gallery label is attached mid-lower "Geoff and Lyn Carnes, Penny Hedge Gallery, 135, Church Street, Whitby, North Yorkshire". White sale label attached to lh side "Runswick Bay £185 15.8.98". Hanging cord attached. Overall, a very attractive painting by this well-known British 20th C landscape artist.
