James Fry is a master of atmospheric light and reflection best known for his Dorset landscapes and coastal views.
‘Fry was called “the last of the English Impressionists” because of his fascination with the play of sunshine and reflections on water." (Taken from - Dictionary of Artists In Britain Since 1945.)
