Art Wanted: Sell your 19th Century Ship Portrait

We are looking for works by:

Albinus, F. T. (German, active 1825-50) - Watercolors
Lived and worked in Hamburg St. Pauli, Germany.
Ship Portraits, exclusively by sailing vessels
Works starting at Euro 800 (Continental Europe) or DKK 5.000 (Denmark). Prices depend on subject, size, date, quality and condition. Please send us an e-mail to receive an exact offer for your work by this artist (free of charge for persons considering to sell their painting).
Albinus painted exclusively in watercolor and/or goauche (works on paper). His oeuvre was overall rather small and his works appear only rarely on the art market, mostly in Northern Germany and Scandinavia. More information about the artist and his oeuvre can be found in our books "Ship Portrait Artists".
The FineArtEmporium is interested in the direct purchase of fine works by this artist and can pay a good price. Please refer to our page "Contact" and send an e-mail to with the information requested there. You will receive an answer usually within 48-72 hours (up to a week in rare cases).

Antique Ship Portrait

Ship Portrait of the Schoonerbrigg *Frankfort Packet of Leith - Robert Lyall Commander* off Heligoland ca. 1830 - the sailing ship is shown under full sail at moderate sea - Watercolor and Gouache, 45 by 60 cm (18 by 24 inch) sight, with frame 51 x 67 cm (20 by 26 inch) - inscribed on the mounting with the name of ship and captain - good condition

Note: On the left side we note a sailing boat which might be a pilot ? On the right side is shown Heligoland Island. This is a fine, early ship portrait by an artist which does not often appear on the market. We like especially the good condition with only a minor spot of tanning and strong colors and very detailled drawing of the details. For more information about the ship see the illustration page. * Show me larger color illustrations *


Please note, that we have no photos or additional information about the above ship(s) or painting(s). The paintings are only shown as examples of works by the artist and are NOT for sale. If you are interested to check paintings available for purchase please refer to our For Sale Category. Thank you
