About

A wonderful watercolour landscape by the acclaimed English artist Claude Muncaster. Painted during the artists' time at sea during the early to mid 20th century. Muncaster was well known for his landscapes and seascapes, his aim was to be able to ‘paint the ships and the sea with greater authority’. This particular panoramic landscape was completed during a bout of homesickness, while Muncaster was on his travels. Completed in his typical style, using muted tones and expressive brushstrokes. Somewhat similar in style to his father, Oliver Hall, Muncaster had a slightly more detailed approach, and was known to "perfectly capture the limpid first light of morning over a coastal port" and "a streak of sunlight through gathering storm clouds at dusk". His talent was spotted by Queen Elizabeth who commissioned him to produce watercolours of the royal residences at Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral. Painted on wove laid to card. Signed. Image Size: 23 x 34.9cm (9.1" x 13.7") Sheet: 27 x 41.4cm (10.6" x 16.3") Artist Biography: Claude Grahame Muncaster, RWS, ROI, RBA, SMA was the son of Oliver Hall RA. Born in 1909 his career as a pinter began when he was fifteen. A passion for the sea lead him to travel the world extensively during the 1920's and 30's. With the outbreak of WWII he joined the RNVR training as a navigator. He was soon recruited as a camofleur. after his artistic talents became known to his superiors. A master of capturing seascapes he was therefore able to hide huge ships ‘in plain sight’ with clever disguises. After the war he painted for the Royal Family and was a frequent guest at Sandringham.
