Duncan Fraser McLea (1841-1916)
Towards North Shields Fish Quay

Size including frame: 16.7" x 22.5"
SOLD

One of an excellent pair of paintings by Duncan Fraser McLea, this one at the mouth of the Tyne looking towards the North Shields Fish quay, and showing both the High and Low Lights. This pair were painted in 1874, shortly before he started exhibiting on Tyneside and later in the Royal Scottish Academy.

McLea went to sea in his youth before deciding to take up painting as a career, settling in South Shields. This pair of paintings fit into the category for which McLea is best known - local shipping and coastal scenes. Sadly, much later in life his work became rather poor because of failing eyesight.
