A post-war oil on canvas painting of ships and cranes in the 'Pool of London'. Based on the vibrant and energetically loose brushwork, it suggests the painting was done in situ of the location, 'en plein air', very much in the style of Edward Seago. There is no obvious signature, but it is clear that the artist was highly competent, and knew how to create form with light and shadow. The artist has definitely captured the bustle and intensity of the busy wharves. In very good clean condition, in its original period frame.

The Pool of London was a stretch of the River Thames that ran from London Bridge to Limehouse. It had been used for centuries as the main area for riverbound commerce in London, only coming to an end in the late 1960s.

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
