Pastel on paper drawing, 6" by 10" (12 1/2" by 17" in its original fine old gilt American 19th century frame), signed at lower right "Stubbs", the subject a man in a small rowboat rounding a headland reflecting in the waters, other boats beyond. This is a scarce, to judge from the auction records, early drawing by the noted American marine artist WILLIAM PIERCE STUBBS (1842-1909). Stubbs is best known for his renderings in oil of clipper ships, these works appearing at the finest auctions of American art, where they can bring many thousands of dollars. This work appears to date to about the late 1860's or the 1870's. It is in good condition, with just a small disturbance in the sky at left. All original, the glass and square nails and rough sawn wood backing indicate this is in the state it was in when originally framed. It's a charming, fine example of 19th century marine art. See the net for much more on Stubbs and his work. .
