When the children were out of the house, Edward Duncan saw the time had come to devote himself entirely to painting. Only at the age of 32 did he marry and raise seven children together with his wife Berthia. When they had gone their own ways, Duncan used the free time and went to the sea for many weeks every summer. On the coast near Swansea in the south of Wales he painted the coastal scenes that are today primarily associated with his name.

This does not mean that he was lazy before. After Duncan's death in 1882, a well-known auction house brought no less than 2000 works under the hammer that he had created during his lifetime. Some of them seem almost like postcard motifs as the ocean gently nestles against perfectly winding coasts, while in others the water is wild, causing ships with full sails to sail into threatening sloping positions. Then there are everyday scenes, observed in his hometown London or somewhere in the country, simply depicting the work of a craftsman or the hunting pleasure of fine gentlemen, and now and then, landscape scenes without water also find their way into Edward Duncan's work. One can see that the artist took great pleasure in his work, was inspired everywhere and also that he did not shy away from trying out new colours, new impressions or new techniques.

Duncan probably drew the security to be able to take different paths as an artist from time to time from his successes. In contrast to many other artists of his time, who chased fame and success in vain, Duncan had already made a name for himself in the art world at a young age and had the freedom to find his own path. This led him above all to the watercolours, which fascinated him in the form of the works of William Havell. His enthusiasm for sea scenes and the proud splendour of sailing ships, which was to be seen in Duncan's countless ship paintings, was probably something he had copied from William John Huggins, who served the English king as court painter and whose works therefore received a great deal of attention. Nevertheless, Duncan developed his own style and above all an impressive expertise in watercolours. As far as colours and oils and mixing ratios and techniques were concerned, he was a universally recognised expert. This can also be seen in his works, each of which, despite often similar motifs, speaks its own language and has its own individual expression. © Meisterdrucke
