Very atmospheric, oil on board, impressionistic landscape with nice thick paint - lovely depth in the cloud formations painted with a skilful looseness and good strong colours. Looks like a coastal scene (possibly Lincolnshire coast) with the white surf crashing through rocks in the background and the impression of flowers and cattle in a field in the foreground. 295 mm x 240 mm (12 inch x 10 inch) approximately. 490 mm x 400 mm (19 inch x 16 inch) approximately.
Good condition - please refer to pictures. The work of North Lincolnshire artist Herbert Rollett (18721932) is becoming increasingly sought after by local collectors. Rollett himself was a late starter when it came to his art. Born in Huckerby, near Gainsborough, on 3rd June 1872, he was the son of a Lincolnshire farmer and one of twelve children. He started painting aged nearly thirty and developed a passion for Lincolnshire landscapes.
Several of his works were exhibited in the Sketching Club room at the Grimsby School of Art in 1902 as part of its annual show. After the First World War, local businessmen began to take an interest in his work and he held a series of one-man shows in small provincial galleries.
In 1921, his work was exhibited at the Victoria Galleries in Hull. After being encouraged and criticised by painter John Alfred Arnesby Brown, Rollett continued to explore further afield, especially around the Humber Bank and the north-east of the county. By the early 20s, he was exhibiting in Manchester, Nottingham and Leeds and at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and Liverpools Walker Gallery. He later gained acclaim in the Paris Salon and at the Royal Academy in London, where a work entitled Little Coates Church was hung in the famous gem room.
Following this success, he exhibited extensively, locally with the Lincolnshire Artists Society, at the Usher Gallery in Lincoln as well as in Grimsby and Hull, and further afield including with the Royal Academy, the Royal Society of British Artists and at Birminghams Ruskin Galleries. Rollett died on 8th December 1932 and was buried in St Nicolas churchyard, Great Coates. Rollett was also prolific, despite being a later starter.All these points combine to create an excellent collectors market for his works. Be sure to add Ashby de la Zouch Fine Art to your.
