James Baker Pyne was a British landscape painter. He was self taught and became inspired by artists such as Francis Danby and J.M.W. Turner. This estuary scene shows Pyne’s interest in capturing natural light. The painting reveals the influence of J.M.W. Turner, of whom Pyne became a follower in the mid-1830s. Like Turner, Pyne’s landscapes are painted in the tradition of Romanticism, which emphasised emotion and the beauty and grandeur of nature.
