Landing in England

Buhot’s prints of the sea express the power and grandeur of nature as he focuses on ever-changing atmospheric effects, including wind, rain, and storm-filled skies.

This print is based on sketches Buhot made during his second trip to England when he landed at Ramsgate, north of Dover, on September 9, 1879.

The following three impressions reveal how Buhot worked through various stages of the print and experimented with different effects.
