London to the Nore

£143.75

The work features the paintings of William Lionel Wyllie, “the most distinguished marine artist of his day.” – National Museum Royal Navy. His work is in the Tate, the Royal Academy, the Imperial War Museum, the National Maritime Museum and many other institutions but Wyllie is perhaps best known for his 42-foot panorama of the Battle of Trafalgar (which was unveiled by King George V) seen by about 100,000 people every year where it still hangs in the Royal Naval Museum within the Historic Dockyard at Portsmouth. The paintings and accompanying text collected here bring to life the busy shipping traffic and bustle of waterside activities along the Thames River from Westminster to ‘the Nore’ at the mouth of the Thames Estuary where the river meets the North Sea.
