Gouache and watercolor on paper painting of a tall ship on the ocean, two other vessels visible, 12 1/2" by 17 3/4" inside the mat, 18 1/2" by 23 1/2" framed, signed at lower right "F. P. Tyars/5-9-03/The Brig". A handwritten note of later 20th century date says "ON THE BACK/FROM E.R. HUGHES OR E.V. FLOYD/TO C.H. SULLIVANT ??/ON HIS APPROACHING MARRIAGE". There are some references to Tyars' work online, but little biographical information is available. I saw online a possible birth/death date pairing of 1848-1918. Evidently he was active around the turn of the century, creating works in watercolor with marine themes. This example exhibits a moderate level of foxing in the sky (see photos). The technical skill visible in the depiction of the tall ship's rigging and sails is considerable. Shipping wizard figures are guesstimates. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS NOW IN MY SHOP.
