Fisherfolk on the Coast - Sold

A superb 19th century oil painting on canvas from the circle of highly regarded landscape and genre painter William Shayer depicting fisherfolk on the French coast.  The painting is a wonderful example of the coastal genre scenes of the period, the highly detailed composition is busy with a good deal of activity, the fisherwomen going about their business in the foreground and with much activity beyond with fisherfolk mooring their sail boats on the jetty, in the distance there are steep cliffs and a couple of fishing boats still at sea.  This picture is beautifully balanced, the composition is first class.
