Cliff End, Studland, Dorset by Harry Van Der Weyden

Harry van der Weyden was born in Boston, Massachusetts but trained at the Slade School of Art, London and the Académie Julian in Paris. He was one of a number of artists in the early 20th century drawn to the British coast and landscape. His bright color palette and reductive, stylized technique were influenced by French Impressionism and the Bloomsbury group.

This work depicts an extensive view of Standfast Point, Swanage and enables Van der Weyden to capture the shimmering translucent qualities of the sea.
