1873-1943, British

An original marine etching by the British artist, Arthur Briscoe, measuring 13 5/8 x 7 7/8 inches, ink signed and numbered, 59/75, cat: Laver 25. Briscoe studied at the Slade Art School and the Academy Julian in Paris and then spent the rest of his time sailing, becoming one of the most prominent British marine artists of the 20th century. He owned his own three ton cutter which he used to sail around the Essex coast. Also crewing on a Polish ship, he sketched every aspect of life on the boat. Most of Briscoe's etchings show sailing ships and the men who sailed them.
