‘The approach to Robin Hood Bay from the Whitby Road, afternoon’ signed Henry Barlow Carter.
Carter’s work shows influences of both J M Turner and Peter De Wint, an artist whose works he collected. Turner’s somewhat impressionistic technique used to convey the power and force of nature along with the play of light on the sea and subject matter is regularly seen in Carter’s work as is the characteristic colour palette of De Wint.
The watercolour in a contemporary rococo and gilt frame.

Moving to Yorkshire in 1830, he met and married his cousin Eliza, settling in Scarborough as a drawing master. His works are represented in a variety of galleries including the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Hull Maritime Museum and Scarborough Art Gallery.
