The Skipper by David W. Haddon

The Skipper confronts us very directly, staring out from his richly-decorated frame. He tells us something about the light and atmosphere beside the sea - probably Newlyn? - but the figure can also be read as a symbol of enduring human values.

Original frame, slightly damaged.
