19th Century Engraving Titled ‘Sale of the Boat’ by Phillip Richard Morris 1882


This print titled "Sale of the Boat" transports us back to a coastal village in 1882. This hand coloured engraving, created by Phillip Richard Morris, depicts a scene bustling with activity and emotion. In the foreground, we see a group of children standing pensively near a fishing boat that is up for sale. Their curious gazes hint at their longing to explore the vast sea and embark on new adventures. The composition beautifully captures the essence of maritime life, showcasing various boats dotting the shoreline. Fishing nets are strewn across the dock, symbolizing both livelihood and sustenance for this close-knit community. A tugboat gracefully glides through the calm waters in the distance, adding an element of movement and transport. The artist's attention to detail is evident as he skillfully portrays every aspect of this coastal setting – from the rugged coastline to the tranquil sea stretching out into infinity. This enchanting print invites us to reflect upon our own connection with nature and how it shapes our lives. As we gaze upon this timeless image, we are reminded of simpler times when children found joy in observing everyday scenes unfolding before them. It serves as a poignant reminder that even amidst change and progress, there will always be an enduring charm in embracing traditions rooted in nature's bounty – such as fishing – which have sustained communities for generations
