This is a beautifully executed work, watercolor and gouache on paper, 14 1/2" by 20 1/2" (21" by 27" as framed), signed at lower right by the noted English artist WILFRED KNOX (1884-1966). Knox is known for his marine art, such as clipper ships, but also for such luminous Venetian and Mediterranean coastal scenes with shipping and maritime subject matter in the image. From perusing the auction records, it appears his work is often mixed up with that of a William Knox (1862-1925); even auction houses making the misidentification error. This example is in pristine condition. There are a few stubborn tape residues and smudges on the glass, casting small shadows in the image, but that is only on the glass and not on the drawing itself. .
