Dimensions : Frame : 366mm x 300mm 33mm. Image : 250mm x 185mm. Weight : 0.620kg net.
Condition/Notes : Very good. The oil on board is in very good condition with good colour, no paint loss and no marking or damage. The painting depicts a coastal steamship at anchor in an estuary discharging cargo to an adjacent lighter with a nearby buoy and a distant lighthouse. The sky is overcast and a single star is shining through the clouds as dusk approaches. The artist has created a romantic scene with the turn of the century steamer turning her engines, as unloading is nearly completed, in preparation for departure. The artist has signed in the lower rh corner in monogram - SDI,DY or YD - as yet unidentified. The painting has been lightly varnished. The base is a George Rowney & Co. Birchmore board size 11-1/2 x 9 which by company records dates it at pre-1924 at which dated the company became George Rowney & Co. Ltd. The plain wooden frame is quite modern indicating that the painting has been reframed in recent times with modern points securing the board. Rings and cord attached. Label attached with 16624 in handscript. An interesting and pleasing study which will benefit from identification of the artist's monogram. Please view the images below :
