William Lionel Wyllie
Fishing Boats




Fishing Boats. c. 1928. Etching, drypoint and aquatint. 9 x 6 7/8 (sheet 13 5/8 x 11 1/4). A rich impression with plate tone and drypoint burr printed on cream wove paper. Signed and annotated 'trial proof' in pencil. Housed Ryde is a British seaside town, civil parish and the most populous town and urban area on the north-east coast of the Isle of Wight. Ryde has a small marina located to the east of Ryde Pier. It is tidal and dries out at low water hence it is more suitable for smaller sailing (bilge keel) and motor cruisers. It has provision for up to 200 boats, either on floating pontoons or leaning against the harbour wall. Housed in a 16 x 20-inch archival mat, suitable for framing. W.L.Wyllie was an artist in oil, watercolor, etching and aquatint of marine and tidal Thames subjects. Born in London, he studied art at the Heatherleys in 1865, and at the Royal Academy Schools between 1866-69, winning the Turner Medal 1869. Wyllie took up etching in 1883 when Robert Dunthorn commissioned an etching of Wyllie's painting 'Toil, Glitter, Grime and Wealth on a flowing Tide', which celebrated the industrial Thames, and had had great success at the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy, being bought by the Chantrey Bequest. He lived in Portsmouth for many years from 1907 and died in London on 6th April 1931. Acknowledged as one of the leading marine artists at the turn of the century. Marine painter to the Royal Victoria Yacht Club, Ryde. Work in the National Maritime Museum.
