Title The Port of Newcastle Upon Tyne
Description This lovely historically interesting British marine oil painting is by Newcastle artist Joseph Henry Kirsop. Painted in 1914, the location of the painting is the port of Newcastle upon Tyne. A range of boats and ships are depicted and Kirsop has beautifully captured the rippled reflections on the water with superb brushwork and tones. Beyond the boats is the city of Newcastle and High Level Bridge, a road and railway bridge spanning the River Tyne between Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead in North East England. It is considered the most notable historical engineering work in the city. It was built by the Hawks family from 5,050 tons of iron and completed in 1859. To the right one can see the spire and clock of All Saints Church and also the unusual spire of the Cathedral Church of St Nicholas.  A lovely painting, especially for Novocastrians.
