Full Description


Oil on canvas painting by William Webb of Venice, mounted in a carved and gilded gesso frame. William Webb was born in Manchester in 1862 and was almost entirely a marine artist, a painter in oils of coastal scenes. He was a prolific painter, influenced, like so many aspiring artists of the era, by the great master J M W Turner. Although his work cannot be compared in the same breath with the genius of Turner, Webb developed a style so totally distinctive that he could not be likened to a mere copyist. Many of his pictures show scenes in the Isle of Man, but he also travelled quite widely afield in the British Isles, including Fleetwood in his home county of Lancashire, Guernsey, Whitby, Falmouth, Cornwall, Norfolk, Northumberland and Cardiff.
