Sea Maidens

In the 1890s Thomas William Bromley Blacklock moved away from realism of his earlier work and began to depict a world of legend and fantasy. This mysterious seascape peopled with mermaids and fairy like figures is typical of his later work. Blacklock was a native of Kirkcudbright. He trained in Edinburgh and spent much of his adult life painting in the Lothians and Perthshire. He did however return to Kirkcudbright several years before his death and was, during that time, associated with the Kirkcudbright artist's colony.
