No one is quite sure who #EdwardNevil was. Little information regarding him can be found. The name may be an alias so as to avoid contractual obligations something a number of artists did. He was a prolific artist working around 1880 to 1900. He traveled extensively producing views of Buge, Antwerp, Rheims and many images of his favoured northern counties of England.
A very competent artist producing genre scenes of the North of England. He painted a number of scenes around Whitby and Staithes. Using a wide colour palette along with smooth efficient brushwork his images are pleasing and inviting. Nevil was a painter in watercolours/gouache but did dabble in oils.
These two scenes may come from that area of the North of England which Nevil favoured. Two pieces displaying this artists talent and ability.
