A delicate and charming early 20th Century watercolour with oil highlights by the listed artist William Howard Yorke IOM (1847-1921). The study depicts a dramatic seascape scene including a sailing ship fighting against the storm on a rocky coastline. The artist has expertly used expressive brushstrokes in oil paint to create added texture and depth to the composition. William Howard Yorke was a member of the Isle of Man Arts Council.

Signed. On watercolour paper.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration, surface dirt and minor foxing particularly on the mount. The frame contains some very minor scuffed edges.
