English Thomas Rose Miles 19th Century Large Original Marine Oil Painting



English Thomas Rose Miles original large marine oil painting on canvas, title inscribed verso "Wind & Rain off Sheerness"; Signed T(homas) R(ose) MILES. This impressive work shows Miles at his best, capturing the drama of the sea while the central working boat finds its way through the rough waves, and the large ocean going ship in the background ploughs through seemingly effortlessly, circa 1880. Cleaned & Relined. In bespoke fine gold leaf frame. THOMAS ROSE MILES (Fl 1869-1906) was a marine, coastal and landscape painter who lived in London, Yarmouth and Dublin. He painted all around the British coast, especially in the area of the North Sea, and often portrayed pure scenes of waves. He is at his best when capturing dramatic scenes like this one, where boats and weather combine to create a dynamic tension, portraying the life and times of sea folk of the 19th century. He was noted for his expressive and realistic handling of the sea. He exhibited at many leading galleries including the Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists, Dublin's Royal Hibernian Society. His works are held in many public collections. Further information is available; his works are referenced in many books including E.H.H. Archibald, Dictionary of Sea Painters; D. Brook-Hart, Marine Painting; A Graves, Dictionary of Artists 1760-1893 and C. Wood, Dictionary of Victorian Painters.
