A extremely fine quality oil on canvas of a tea clipper in full sail,titled "Sunset on the Atlantic", by sought after artist Wilfred Knox
Wilfred Knox painted in watercolour, gouache and occasionally oils,specialising in marine and landscapes,and was born in Handsworth, Birmingham, in 1884.
Little is known of his early life although Wilfred Knox had worked as an engineer and served in the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War. He painted under contract for Frost and Reed but much of his work was painted for a local Birmingham dealer under the pseudonym of A. D. Bell.
The subjects were mostly clipper ships, harbour scenes and landscapes with views in the West Country, Scotland, Ireland and Venice. Wilfrid Knox died on 30th October 1966 at the age of 82.
This fine example on offer is one of his rare versions in oil paint,and is of the upmost top quality in finishing,depicting the sun setting in the distance.
Amazingly realistic ocean waves and full of life.
He more often than not painted tiny watercolours
and these are often sold in the price range of £400-600 pounds
