Wreck Of The Dmitry


This watercolour by John Freeman is not a gothic painting but a study based on the architecture and events in Whitby in 1885 which gave birth to a gothic legend.

 The Irish author Bram Stoker`s visits to Whitby coincided with an event which he may have witnessed, or more probably seen as a Sutcliffe photograph. Stoker was a summer visitor to the town when the wrecking of the Dmitry took place in October 1885.
