A trompe l'oeil still life of an engraving titled "A Storm", on a wooden background. Inscribed faintly 'A Ship in Distress, Breaking...…………. Painted by F...… …. 1850".
This is a remarkable painting, truly an 'eye deceiver'; it seems that a tattered print is attached to the wooden boards by sealing wax, and as a further touch of verisimilitude, a fly crawls on the boards.
The painting has an excellent surface and the canvas has never been lined. The frame is a later one, but suits the painting perfectly.
STRICKLAND LOWRY (c.1737-c.1785) was a portrait painter and engraver. Born at Whitehaven, said to have died at Worcester. He practised also in the Midlands where he built up a reputation. He also worked in Dublin and Northern Ireland.
Private Collection, Salisbury, Wiltshire. VERSO: an old Christie's stencilled number, and the inscription 'Nov.11, 55'.
