Antique English Oil Painting of Broadstairs England circa 1890

An antique English oil on board painting of Broadstairs, England circa 1890 with its original frame. Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet in the Thanet district of east Kent, England, about 80 miles (130 km) south-east of London. Situated between Margate and Ramsgate, Broadstairs is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the "Jewel in Thanet's crown". The name, Broadstairs, derives from a former flight of steps in the chalk cliff, which led from the sands up to the 11th-century shrine of St. Mary on the cliff's summit. This luminous painting captures the beauty of this coastal town with its curved beachfront at sunrise when the eastern sun bathes the entire coast in a serene panoply of pale dawn colours. The hand of the artist is quite visible in the overall arrangement of the land set with the large sky above as well as the beautiful depiction of the clouds reflecting the rising sun.
