A View of the Mersey Estuary at Waterloo

WAG 2012.1


Coastal scene with sand-dunes in the foreground and a beach with figures in the middle-ground; a terrace of houses to the left side, with white buildings along the horizon above a strip of blue sea. This view is painted from the sands just north of Waterloo, looking across the river Mersey to Fort Perch Rock at New Brighton. An entry in the artist's diary suggests this view was painted in around three hours.
