George Weatherill (1810-1890)

Whitby Harbour

Provenance: Walker Galleries, Harrogate

Sold for £1,200
Estimated at £600 - £900


First example: Moderate time staining to sheet which is significantly more pronounced towards outer edges against slip. Associated tempering of colour overall with some possible additional light fading, but painted in the artist's characteristically muted palette. No evidence of cockling. Not examined out of the frame.

Second example: Relatively light to moderate time staining across sheet which is slightly more pronounced in some areas of the sky particularly those which are less worked. Associated tempering to overall colour depth but the blue, for example used to highlight windows in particular, retains a good degree of freshness. That in the sky possibly more on the grey side. No evidence of cockling. Not examined out of the frame.
