James Herbert Snell (1861-1935)
`Fishing Boats at Martigues, South of France`

An e
xcellent watercolour by well listed artist James Herbert Snell depicting fishing boats at Martigues, a fishing port near to Marseille in the South of France. . Snell is an interesting artist who bridged the late Victorian and impressionist eras. His early work is typically Victorian, but after studying in Paris he became influenced by Impressionism, and from 1905 worked almost exclusively in the South of France, especially around the Martigues area of which there are numerous paintings. This example most likely dates to the period around 1910 and is typical of his later colourful palette. Very good unfaded condition with new double ingres mount and satin gilt swept frame in excellent condition.
