FRANK P. TYARS English marine art original gouache and watercolor painting of clipper ship dated 1903

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. .
