Antique Impressionist oil 'Unloading the Catch' by the well collected American/Dutch artist George Bunn (fl 1885-1898). A fine quality oil on panel of a Dutch shoreline, it depicts a boat coming to shore with fisher folk figures in the foreground. A loose and diffused style of brush strokes creates a rhythmic quality in the work. The artist's soft technique, particularly in the heavy clouds of the background results in a lovely tonal palette. The painting is signed and dated 1896, lower left. Provenance: from the important art dealers, Vicars Brothers of London who sold the work around 1900. Sight: 16"L x 21"H
Born in Holland, Bunn was active with the Hague School. This work shows the influence of Hendrik Willem Mesdag. He spent much of his life in America and is primarily known for subjects with coastal and marine scenes.
Art has long been regarded as a strong and safe investment. See 'Hang Your Investments on the Wall' in the Financial Times published in October, 2010.
Dimensions: 21"L x 1"W x 27"H
Condition: very good, ready to hang
