Antique Nautical Painting of Steamboat and Ships, Oil on Panel, 19th Century

BRITISH SCHOOL (19TH CENTURY) OIL ON PANEL OF STEAMBOAT AND SHIPS AT SEA, Signed "H. Bond" in lower left corner

Item # 1401DKE20PP

A finely detailed and executed rendering in oil on panel of the twin masted steamboat "Eros" sailing into the rolling green waters of a harbor, two smaller vessels visible in the background. A seagull flies above a wooden barrel buoy, a warning of the land just faintly visible in the leftmost edge of the scene. The ship is of exquisite precision, each brush stroke minuscule and exacting, capturing with a delicate hand the subtle curve and swell of the ship's hull - black smoke billows from the stack at the center of the vessel, a handful of onlookers watching the impending shore.

For anyone passionate about fine nautical scenes, this is an exceptional find.

Measurements: [frame] 29" x 20 7/8"; [panel] 23 7/8" x 15 1/2"

Condition Report: Frame not original; frame cracked along right hand edge - we can glue this upon request, but the seam and weakness will remain. Dimples along edges from nail beneath the surface; very light surface grime and very light surface craquelure. Panel is backed by a later panel, the panel almost certainly trimmed (hence the absence of a full signature). [UNDER UV] scattered touch ups in sky; ships and water are untouched. Overall exceptional well preserved condition.
