DEEP-SEA FISHING IN WINTER-TIME: BOARDING THE "CUTTER" ON THE DOGGER BANK (c. 1914)

A work by Thomas M. M. Hemy that was a 2 page spread, in a 1914 issue of 'The Graphic'. I think, if I read correctly the faint words at the top of the image that follows, an edition in Mar. 1914.

The print was for sale as this page was updated in early Apl. 2010. By 'devonian35' of Ilfracombe. It was offered at GBP 12.50 or US $19.10. A print of approx. 40 x 27 cms. The listing is now long expired & I cannot tell you if it in fact was then sold.

And while we are on the subject of the Dogger Bank, I understand that an 1894 issue of 'The Sketch Magazine' contained an article re 'Mr T. M. Hemy's Pictures of the Dogger Bank -: 'A Bit of A Dust Up', 'Black Wednesday', 'Baccy and Literature', 'A Patient' & 'Where There's Life, There's Hope'. I have not seen the images, & the exact date of the magazine issue is not known to me.

SAILING SHIP OFF BELL ROCK LIGHTHOUSE (c. 1900)

A work by Thomas M. M. Hemy that was sold by 'John Nicholson and Dunelm Fine Art', who specialise in Northumbrian, Scottish and staithes artists & maintain a permanent gallery of artworks at 'Graham Smith Antiques', of 83 Fern Avenue, Jesmond, in Newcastle. And an on line gallery of artworks for sale.

The work can be seen in a giant size via this fine page. Which also has some most interesting biographical data about the artist. It would seem that the work, an oil on canvas of 25 x 30 inches in size, was listed for GBP 2250 & was later sold.

It is quite possible that the title is a description of the work rather than an actual title.

I do hope that the use of the image in this informational & non-profit web site is acceptable. If not, I shall, of course, remove the image from this page. With regret, however.

Bell Rock Lighthouse is a most famous lighthouse indeed, located 11/12 miles off the coast of Angus, Scotland. Bell Rock was the scene of many shipwrecks, as many as six a year in history, as the rock, also known as 'Inchcape', lies hidden just below the surface of the sea for most of the day. The lighthouse, 100 ft. tall, & now automated, was built by Scottish engineer Robert Stevenson between 1807 & 1810 out of blocks of local granite. There is some debate however as to the builder. For which debate I direct you elsewhere.
