About

A dramatic gouache and watercolor marine scene showing a view of turbulent ocean waters overwhelming a three-masted ship. Signed lower left, 'A. Wilde Parsons' for Arthur Wilde Parsons (British, 1854 - 1931) and dated 1910. A marine and landscape painter, Arthur Wilde Parsons (sometimes also referred to as Alfred Wilde Parsons) exhibited successfully throughout the United Kingdom, including at the Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham; Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts; Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; Manchester City Art Gallery; Royal Academy (1895, 1902); Royal Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street; New Water-Colour Society and Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours. After studying locally in Bristol, Parsons visited Holland and Italy (1911) for study trips which left a lasting impact on his work. Parsons mainly exhibited his work at the Royal West of England Academy where he was a member and contributed greatly to his local artistic community in 1908 as a founding member and president of a local art society called the “Bristol Savages”. Queen Mary, who admired his work, invited him to paint a number of miniature pictures for the Royal Doll`s House at Windsor. His work can be found in public collections in Bristol. Displayed in an ivory mat. Matted Dimensions: 18.25''H x 24''W x .13''D Reference: The Dictionary of British Artists 1880-1940, J. Johnson and A.
