An abstract composition by Robert Sadler, drawing on elements familiar to him from the coast near Aldeburgh - the patterns of sea and shoreline. Sadler could watch the sea from his studio and he frequently used the patterns of town buildings, the estuary, marsh and tides as inspiration towards abstract and semi abstract paintings.Robert Sadler was fortunate to have travelled widely after joining the RAF in the war. His work had taken him to London, Copenhagen and Washington- where he managed to train at some of the prestigious art colleges of the day including the Corcoran School, experiencing American abstract expressionism first hand.
