A fine impressionist watercolour landscape, from English artist Gerald Edward Moira (1867-1959). Moira became best known for his murals, however his watercolour landscapes and oil paintings are collected by both the public and private sectors. This wonderful watercolour depicts the tranquil 'Blue Pool', in Dorset, the setting is interlaced with woodland and sandy paths that seem to take you to another world. Presented in the original wooden frame used in the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour exhibition, as evident from the labels attached to the reverse. Signed with initials 'G.M'. On wove.


The backing board of the frame is slightly warped. Some minor losses and marks to the frame, particularly to the lower edge. Mount burn is visible in the top right corner. Inspection under UV light reveals no restoration. Generally in fine condition.

Gerald Moira was born in London, in 1867, the son of a Portuguese diplomat. Moira first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1891, and his first commission for a mural came soon after, for the Trocadero restaurant in Shaftesbury Avenue. His other early commissions included the ceilings of the vestry and library of the Unitarian Chapel, Liverpool, the boardroom of Lloyd's Register of Shipping, and paintings and stained glass for the Central Criminal Court in London. He also painted in oil, tempera, and watercolour. Moira was principal of the Edinburgh College of Art from 1923 until 1932, president of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, vice-president of the Royal Watercolour Society, a member of the Royal West of England Academy, and a founder member of the National Portrait Society.
