William Carlaw RSW (1847-1889) - Late 19th Century Gouache, Fishermen



A fine gouache and watercolour painting by the artist William Carlaw RSW. The scene depicts a seascape with four fishermen handling a large net. The skilful application of colour and precise brush strokes clearly highlight the artist's proficiency in the subject and medium. Signed to the lower left-hand corner. There is an artist's biography inscribed on the reverse. Presented in a washline card mount and in a wooden frame with a gilt detail, as shown. On watercolour paper.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and slight undulation to the surface. Some marks and foxing to the mount. Scuffing and small losses to the frame.
