Grey and Silver: Chelsea Wharf

Grey and Silver: Chelsea Wharf probably dates from between 1864 and 1868. 1

It is difficult to date, because it is a freely painted sketch, possibly painted over another painting. However, it does share some stylistic qualities with Chelsea in Ice [YMSM 053] and Battersea Reach from Lindsey Houses [YMSM 055].

It was first exhibited with the Society of French Artists, 1875 (cat. no. 80) as 'Chelsea Reach – Harmony in Grey'.

Notes:

1: YMSM 1980 [more] (cat. no. 54).
