The Needles (Isle of Wight) - Anthony Flemming - Framed Print - 16"H x 20"W

Anthony Flemming is a member of the Wapping Group of Artists. He is a good quality water colourist with convincing movement and sense of location who specialises in maritime subjects.

Until taking up painting full-time in 1970 he worked as a designer on racing car projects for clients such as Jack Brabham and Bruce Maclaren.

The Needles is a row of three distinctive columns of chalk that rise out of the sea off the western extremity of the Isle of Wight, close to Alum Bay.

The Needles Lighthouse stands at the outer, western end of the formation. Built in 1859, it has been automated since 1994.

The formation takes its name from a fourth needle-shaped pillar called Lot's Wife, that collapsed in a storm in 1764. The remaining rocks are not at all needle-like, but the name has stuck.
