Artist: Manner of J.M.W. TurnerMedium: Oil on boardImage Size: 14 x 20Date: 19th cent.
Painted in the style of Joseph Mallord William Turner. Turner was a seminal British painter who painted primarily landscapes and marine paintings. He is most know for his remarkable renderings of fog, rain and light, and his work in this area is considered an early precursor to modern landscape abstraction.
This work was deaccessioned from a South Carolina museum in order to provide acquisition funds for the museum. There is very faint craquelure; normal for a painting over 100 years old. A faint older scratch lines the cliffs midway down on the right hand side. The frame is 20th century and has two small filled in holes where a plaque used to be.
