Clipper Ship in a Following Sea, oil on board, signed P.E. George, c1950. Framed.
Dimensions : Frame : 480mmx 735mm x 43mm. Image : 350mm x 600mm. Weight : 3.000kg net.
Condition/Notes : Good. The oil on board work depicts a classical clipper ship in a following sea with white-horses. There is no damage to the painting and the colours are good with no paint loss. The painting emphasizes the elegant sleek design of the ship as she glides unhindered through the breaking waves and rolls majestically to the swell of the ocean. Several crew members can be seen on deck as a wave breaks over the port midships. The clouds are reflecting the setting sun and this is caught by the rigging and taut canvas. The painting is signed P.E. George in the lower rh corner. The heavy wooden frame is in fair condition with scuffing to the face and edges revealing previous coats of pale green paint. The board base is nailed in several places to the frame and has been covered with a faded decorated paper backing sheet which is torn and detached in places. Two old rusty hanging rings are attached. No labels or script. The painting will benefit from reframing. Framed or unframed shipping options available. Please view the images below :
