Lot Essay

Cornish Cliffs, Newquay was painted in the same year as Leader's first Academy exhibit of a Cornish view, The Incoming Tide on the Cornish Coast. The formation of the rocks revealed at low tide on the beach appears to be the same for both pictures and it is possible that the present work was a plein air study for the larger oil.
