Fry specialised in landscape paintings. Research and Cultural Collections owns a number of his landscapes, including this particular painting which depicts an estuary in the town of Woodbridge, Suffolk. The soft hues and subtle brush strokes lend themselves to the serenity of this quintessentially idyllic, British landscape. The building attracts the viewer’s gaze as the painting’s central focus; the chickens in the foreground suggest that this may be a farm.
