|Description||During the 1890s the Dowdeswell Galleries, London, held several exhibitions of Wyllie's watercolours. In 1896 over a hundred coastal subjects were exhibited in “'Salt-Water Studies', of 'Sunshine, Storms, and Calms'”, and this atmospheric watercolour may have been among them. The reviewer of the 'Athenæum' literary magazine commented that: 'In these the painter has, with incomparable skill, given us the sea in all her moods... the gradations and the atmosphere lack neither subtlety nor tenderness; and it is a supreme charm of Mr Wyllie's art that harmonies of tone, colour, and light dominate his most splendidly and sumptuously coloured drawings...' ‘Athenæum’, No. 3573, April 18, 1896.|
