Colkett moved to Great Yarmouth in around 1844. It seems likely that this is a view on the estuary of the River Yare. There are ship's masts in the distance suggesting the Port of Great Yarmouth itself. The vessel is seen at low tide with it's paddle wheels and rudder partly clear of the water.
Good. The picture has been relined and reframed in around 1990.
The picture is not signed so is being sold on an attribution basis. Colkett painted several pictures depicting boys bathing, a feature shared in the present picture.
