The Slip

Stanhope Alexander Forbes (1857–1947)


Birch, frontispiece

"Stanhope Forbes’ first picture in Newlyn was of “The Slip” ..., as the steep pathway to the beach is locally called. In it the silver tide laps gently up under a grey sky, warming to amber at the horizon; a rowing boat is drawn up alongside the footway ; a girl, bending over the iron rail, hands down nets and other gear to the fisherman, who makes ready to put forth" (Birch 32).
