As the summer turns into autumn and winter beckons in the furthest distance, it’s normally with a heavy heart we look back fondly upon a holiday season well spent. Yet with the permanence of this stunningly-crafted new Paul Corfield canvas on board study, we can be transported back to a special time and place in a heartbeat. Pictorially inspired by the best-selling contemporary landscape artist’s favourite local beach, ‘Sunset at Middle Beach’ is based on a stretch of coast close to his home in Studland, Dorset; yet could just as easily be any beach, anywhere to those of us visually supplanting out very own sandy retreats when looking out upon it.
As is the much-respected artist’s welcomed way, Corfield finds time and space to pictorially enclose his beloved and middle-distant white house, this time sprung on the horizon-seeking cliff top, which as ever illustratively ties together the entire piece. Limited to a somewhat trifling 150 – albeit hand-signed – giclee-manifest iterations, all the signs point to a sudden and extensive uptake in interest in this brand new Autumn 2015 reveal by Corfield, as in acknowledgement of this admission we suggest those of an interested disposition move quick.
