A high quality giclée print of the original gouache on paper produced by Peter Yates in 1956. This is a composite view of Boscastle, a fishing port on the north coast of Cornwall. Boscastle is a natural inlet, but harbour walls, evident here, were once built, and allowed for the import of limestone and the export of slate. In so many of Yates’s paintings there is a strong sense of place: this is a village with rows of small craft, nets and masts; a boat rests upon the beach awaiting its summer repair; there are ricks of corn and serrated furrows of a ploughed field; and high above the village the Cornish sun presides, flooding the scene and casting a shadow of striking complimentary yellows purples and blacks.

A Limited Edition giclée print on 310gms thick, 100% cotton rag. Hand-numbered and hand-embossed.
