Michael Grimsdale (b. 1963) - Signed & Framed 1993 Oil, Late Afternoon
DescriptionA bold harbour scene in vibrant tones by the contemporary British painter Michael Grimsdale (b. 1963). Depicting a fisherman positioned in a relaxed pose atop his striking blue boat, Grimsdale has perfectly captured the slow paced, picturesque Cornish setting possibly located in Port Isaac. The relaxed brushstrokes and vibrant use of tone gives this artwork a contemporary feel and displays Grimsdales clear proficiency in the medium. Well presented in a floating wood frame. With a titled artist label on the reverse, as shown. Signed. On canvas.
There is a minor loss to the upper right inner edge of the frame. Otherwise the artwork is in very good condition.
