Charles Napier Hemy - English

Off for the Night, 81.4 x 121.3 cm

The Trawler, 27 x 36 inches

The importance of the distant boat in each of these compositions should not be underestimated. It acts as a kind of hinge, holding the image together. A hinge may seem insignificant in comparison with the much larger size of a door, but the door doesn't work without it.
