Details

Portloe is considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of the Roseland Peninsula and one of the prettiest villages in Cornwall. It’s steep sided valleys has meant that it has managed to escape development over the years and many buildings differ little from when they were built. It’s name develops from the Cornish Porth Logh meaning “cove pool”. The naturally sheltered position meant that the village grew in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries as a busy pilchard fishing port. At the beginning of the twentieth century there were more than fifty boats fishing here - now only three boats work from the cove mainly for crab and lobster. This painting is on a professional quality, bespoke, traditional hand-stretched medium grain cotton canvas made in Cornwall using the highest quality kiln-dried Californian Pine Stretcher Bars sourced from sustainable forests. It is ready to hang or can be framed and comes with a certificate of authenticity. It is also available as an open edition giclee print.
