About

William Edward Webb British, (1862-1903) Penzance Harbour Oil on canvas, signed Image size: 29 inches x 45.5 inches Size including frame: 38 inches x 54.5 inches William Webb was born in Manchester in 1862. Although he lived all his life in Manchester he travelled throughout the UK painting coastal and marine scenes around the main ports and harbours. He also spent a great deal of time in the Isle of Mann painting numerous scenes along the coast. He exhibited at the Manchester City Art Gallery with more than 60 paintings during his lifetime. He also exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery Liverpool between 1892-1902, as well as at the Royal Academy from 1892-1902. Webb painted in a highly distinctive style; loose and informal but which manages to retain the sense of perspective. He struggled with ill health and depression throughout his life which sadly led to his suicide in 1903. In 1974 a retrospective exhibition was held at The Old Customs House and Old Solent House in Lymington, which brought a new found interest in his work. His paintings are highly sought after and are represented in many collections and Museums including the Astley Hall Museum, Harris Museum, Manchester City Galleries, Manx Museum, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Shipley Art Gallery. Presentation: The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition. Condition: As with all of our original antique oil paintings, this work is offered in ready to hang gallery condition, having been professionally cleaned, restored and revarnished.
