Condition/Notes : The oil on canvas study of the British Clipper Ship "Cutty Sark" is in good condition with good colour. There is a small area of stabilized paint loss 55mm long by 10mm - 1mm in the top lh corner along the edge but this is not noticeable and blends into the cloudy sky. There is also a degree of stabilized light craqueleur to the paint surface in places but again this is not noticeable. The style can be described as impasto although this is particularly applicable to the sea-horses and full-sails and to a lesser degree the clouds. The painting is signed Rob Milliken 66 in the lower lh corner and titled "Cutty Sark" in the same hand. The original, heavy, white painted, wooden frame with inner fabric surround is in quite good condition with scuffing and scratching in places. The stretcher is nailed to the frame and the canvas stapled in places; "Cutty Sark" is written in pencil top lh corner of the canvas with artist's signature and Oct 1966 below. Old cord attached. This is an early work prior to his conversion to traditional Egg Tempera medium in 1991.
