Docklands near Lincoln Cathedral
Watercolour 7” x 9”
Signed lower right and dated 1921
Dickinson lived in West Parade, Lincoln and exhibited works at the Nottingham Museum and Art gallery in 1913.
This little Docklands scene is painted with a keen and honest eye for the true details of a fairly humble subject. The artist had no reservations about placing the stark elevations of industrial buildings and warehouses immediately in the middle distance to the right.
Possibly the finest architectural feature here, Lincoln Cathedral, takes backstage, being set very far away in the background and treated in a subtle and delicate manner in the pale and misty tones and colours created by aerial perspective.
