Framed Painting by English Painter John Sell Cotman
This beautiful seascape was painted by English artist John Sell Cotman. Born in Norfolk, England, Cotman was known for his watercolor and oil paintings. This oil on canvas piece depicts fishermen returning with the day's haul before an aging seaside castle. Many of Cotman's works depict buildings in various states of disrepair set alongside bodies of water while the world continues on around them. Extraordinary use of color give this painting a warm feel, so much so that you can almost feel the rays cast from the setting sun.
