Provenance: Private Collection


At the start of World War II, Cundall worked for the War Artists' Advisory Committee and latterly as an Admiralty artist focusing on the work of the Merchant Navy: a timely subject that had been urged on the Admiralty by the Chamber of Shipping the previous Spring.

This watercolour relates to a painting in the National Maritime Museum, entitled 'On Board a Minesweeper'.
