A Waste of Waters, 1907 (oil on canvas)

2956811 A Waste of Waters, 1907 (oil on canvas)
by Hemy, Charles Napier (1841-1917); 121.9x182.9 cm; Private Collection; ( The title of the picture comes from Robert Southey, his poem Madoc of 1805 recounting the ocean voyage of a medieval Welsh king to America: Day after day, day after day the same . . . A weary waste of waters!
Hemy, a devout Catholic, forged a deep spiritual bond with the sea when he was only nine years old, enduring the passage from Liverpool to Melbourne with his family, a three month journey; their trip back to England, four years later, would take twice as long. By the time the Hemys returned to Newcastle, Charles was an experienced sailor at the age of thirteen. The sea would haunt him for the rest of his life, as he later wrote, it entered my soul, it was imprinted on my mind, and I never forgot it, I have gone on painting it all my life
Hemy considered his best work to be produced in 1908, at the age of 67, when the present picture was exhibited. A Waste of Waters is the culmination of decades spent sketching the water- a vast, empty sea, churns slowly as gulls swoop overhead.

Youth, 1902 (tempera & w/c)

2956809 Youth, 1902 (tempera & w/c) by Hemy, Charles Napier (1841-1917); 45x68 cm; Private Collection; ( This is the first version of Hemy's large oil of 1903, exhibited at The Royal Academy in 1903 (no. 89) and now in the Maritime Museum, Hartlepool. It was Hemy's frequent practice to devise his largest subjects in vivid sketches before developing them into his more carefully worked oils. A critic for The Times remarked that the finished oil was ...beyond all question his masterpiece.
The graceful racing yacht was the Barbara, named after one of his daughters, and the crew are three of his six sons. They are turning hard to windward from a broad reach, with a reef in the main and both headsails set, whilst another yacht on the horizon is on the other tack in the opposite direction. ); Photo A© The Maas Gallery, London; English, out of copyright
