"On the Beach at Clovelly 1880 Worcester" hand written by the artist on the back of the painting. On the front lower left signed James Bradley 1880.
This serenely charming work depicts a fisherman mending nets with his wife standing next to him. She holds a large wicker basket, pausing a moment in the midst of her daily chores. Behind the couple there are two crisply rendered fishing boats and nets drying on a rack, with the sea lapping off into the wide distance beyond. The atmospheric seaside rendering is complemented by the quiet introspection both figures evoke.
James Bradley was an English painter from Worcester, England born around 1848. Clovelly is a village in Devon, England. The large original carved wooden frame features palmette and beaded borders. The painting is in great antique condition. Some damage only to the frame.
