This etching characterizes the morning light over the bay looking out towards St. Michael’s Mount in Cornwall, England. Mount’s Bay, well known for its dramatic and unique daylight, seems in all weather conditions to have a romantic feel to it. Both Newlyn and St. Ives painters have depicted this light in much of their work for a number of generations now. The artist was particularly interested in the effect of light in the sky echoed on the beach and sea below.
