circa: Early 1900s
A sunny seascape oil painting on canvas by P. Denison in a carved gilt frame, circa 1900. The artist captured the scene and its inhabitants with spare, loose brush strokes. A dapper couple stands at the foreground facing into the sea breeze as a horseman pulls in a dressing cabin. A crowd in their summer straw hats are seated off to the left, with buildings and a pier off in the distance. You can make out a sailboat and a rowboat heading out to sea. The painting handles light and color beautifully. The gilt frame is carved resembling overlayed pine cone petals with floral medallions interspersed throughout.
Condition: Painting is in very good condition. Minor fading on frame. Some parts of the frame have been reglued.
