Notes: In this majestic scene, the white sails and seagulls distracts from the harmony of the blues and greys comprising the water, earth and sky. The design offers a prosaic Orientalist scene where similar subject matter in her work creates poetic visions in which Oriental images are deployed.
Provenance: Acquired directly from a descendant of the L.M. Miller family. This was accompanied with the entire family collection of remaining works; including original paintings, pencil sketches and one of a kind proofs.
