Buttersworth, Thomas Junior (British, 1797-1842) - Oilpaintings on canvas.
Lived and worked in Greenwich, part of greater London, Great Britain.
Ship Portraits, Seascapes, Harbor Views, Battle Scenes, Man-of-War

Buttersworth Junior continued his father´s style and is very difficult to state exactly, if the painting has been done by the father (Thomas Buttersworth Senior) or the son. The quality of all Buttersworth paintings differ from rather average to high quality. Information about the artist and his oeuvre can also be found in our book "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).

Example of a picture by Thomas Buttersworth:

Image of oilpainting by Thomas Buttersworth Junior

A British Frigate chasing a Spanish Frigate at sea, executed at the beginning of the 19th Century, the vessels in action and sailing at full speed, indistincly signed "T. Buttersworth", Oil on canvas, 55 x 68 cm, good condition, period gilt frame, the possession of a Private Collector in the United States of America

Note: Very diffcult to say, if this work has been executed by the father or son. Because of the style of the water we suppose that this is a high quality work of Buttersworth Junior. Click on the image to see a larger illustration. Photo Copyright is with the Fine Art Emporium.
