Approaching StormArtist: Charles Napier Hemy (1841 - 1917)

Items / Oil Paintings



Mixed media on paper, laid down. Signed and dated 1896,
prov. Canadian collection
A wonderful example of Hemy's work. The sense of a churning coastal
view is strong. Hemy loved the sea he has caught the full force of it.
Hemy sometimes worked in mixed media where he painted parts of the painting in oil and other in watercolour based mediums.
Painted in 1896 when Hemy was at the height of his powers.
