The Ship, Littlehampton, Sussex

Date made: c.1900-1933

Artist: Knox, Archibald

Description: A bright and colourful watercolour by Archibald Knox (1864-1933) of a large sailing vessel moored at Littlehampton, Sussex. The West Sussex coastline appears to have been a favourite area of Knox's, as several paintings survive of coastal scenes in the area. The artist is said to have painted his watercolour scenes in a few hours or less, but that he would also sit for hours waiting for the exact light and cloud formations that he wanted to paint.
