Fine 19th century Scottish or English painting signed WILLIAM SHAYER SR. (1788-1879)
Fine circa 1860 unframed oil on relined canvas, 28" by 36", titled "Fishermen landing fish on the beach of Scotland", signed "Wm. Shayer". This British marine genre painting offers superb detail by an accomplished hand, as well as a look into a simpler time. It was offered in a Christie's East/New York 19th century European paintings sale a number of years ago, estimated at $4-6,000. I welcome offers on most of my shop offerings but am firm at $3,750 on this particular painting. See the net for much more information on the work of this noted 19th century artist, the works of whom sell for very large sums at major London auctions. Note whitish patches, which could be some kind of mold, and surface is dusty. Feel free to email me for more details and more detailed photos, as the nine provided (maximum permitted), don't nearly suffice.
