Barton Shore

Date made: c.1900-1933

Artist: Knox, Archibald

Description: A minimalist watercolour entitled 'Barton' by Archibald Knox (1864-1933) of a grey overcast sky, where the sky and the sea appear to merge together. The only detail to stand out is the solitary sailing boat tied up to the end of the groyne on the beach. Skyscapes, where the light and movement of cloud formations are the main focus of the painting were popular themes for Knox with the sea or horizon only providing a narrow band at the base of the artwork.
