Condition/Notes : The oil painting on board study of an unidentified Three-Masted Square-Rigger is in good condition with no signs of damage or paint loss. The scene depicts a sailing vessel underway with accompanying albatrosses off a distant coast-line, most likely in the Southern Ocean, with another vessel astern. The painting is signed and dated by the artist in the lower lh corner. The painting is well executed by this well known maritime artist and he has effectively captured the sense of motion as the ship sails into a moderate swell. The painting is housed in a gilt decorated wooden frame which is in quite good condition with light scratching to the edges, slight loss of gesso on the inner lh edge adjacent to the painting and scuffing to the corners. The textured board support is secured directly to the frame with arrow points and sealed with 50mm gummed tape. There is no separate backing board. In the centre is a rectangular mark indicating that a label was fixed here but has been removed at some time. Unfortunately there is no visible script. A interesting maritime study in the traditional manner.
