Scarlett from Castletown

Date made: c.1900-1933

Artist: Knox, Archibald

Description: A minimalist watercolour by Archibald Knox (1864-1933) of the backs of houses on Queen Street viewed from the outer breakwater at Castletown and looking towards Knockrushen and Scarlett. Knox's watercolour sketches can be seen as exercises in capturing the light and a single moment in time. 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.’
