Watercolour 88


Date made: 1884-1933

Artist: Knox, Archibald

Description: A minimalist and relatively abstract watercolour by Archibald Knox (1864-1933) depicting a coastal scene where the heavy grey skies merge into the grey sea without a distinguishable horizon. The painting has been identified as being Barton, a coastal location in south eastern England, where Knox painted various scenes. Knox's watercolour sketches can be seen as exercises in capturing the light and a single moment in time.
