We have offered here an Original Oil Painting on Canvas by English artist "Philip John Ouless (1817-1885)". This one has a small two masted sailing ship just off the coast with a Lighthouse in the foreground. There are two men on the stone wall near the lighthouse, and a grey dawn colored sky. There also appears to be headlands across the bay. The Painting is 12 1/2" by 8 1/2" in size, and comes in a gold tone frame. The Painting has been signed on the back of the stretcher bar, and does show some crazing and staining from age. It was recently cleaned and varnished,and is otherwise in okay condition. Ouless was known for his seascapes, and some of his larger canvases sell well in the bigger auction houses. This one would make a nice addition to any older English collection.
