Beached Boats Below Chalk Cliffs

WAG 8453


Short lived and worked in London and Sussex for most of his life. He was considered one of the leading figures in the field of etching and engraving in the early 20th century, responsible for reviving interest in mezzotint and aquatint techniques. He was also a skilled watercolourist, as shown by this work. This view is likely to be on the Sussex coast, where Short produced many drawings and watercolours.
