Edward Wesson (1910-1983) watercolour, signed & dated ‘81, 30 x 48 cm, framed & glazed The Solent from Shalfleet, Isle of Wight
Born in Blackheath, London in 1910, Edward Wesson was one of Britain’s most outstanding 20th century watercolourists. His distinctive style used very little pencil outline. He preferred to dampen his paper and then apply his watercolours ‘wet on wet’. He was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and from the 1950s was elected and exhibited at most of the leading societies.
