Port Fish by Lawrence Isherwood
A rare and exquisitively painting original oil on board painting by the late Wigan artist, James Lawrence Isherwood. Although Isherwood repeated many subject matters throughout his life, this early study of a fish’s head is one of the only ones known to exist and demonstrates incredible brush work and a true eye for handling colour and paint. This painting really does have to be examined close up in person to fully appreciate the quality of brushwork at play.
Titled to the reverse and signed.
