Artist's Description

Using a Frank Meadow Sutcliffe for reference another go at figures in a painting. The boat is a coble, a type of open fishing boat which developed on the North East coast of England. The distinctive shape of the boat — flat-bottomed and high-bowed — arose to cope with the particular conditions prevalent in this area. Flat bottoms allowed launching from and landing upon shallow, sandy beaches; an advantage in this part of the coast where the wide bays and inlets provided little shelter from stormy weather. However, fishermen required high bows to sail in the dangerous North Sea and in particular to launch into the surf and to land on the beaches.
