Ship Portraits of Sailing Vessels
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).
Cammillieri was one of the leading ship portrait artists in Marseilles during that period. In his watercolors he combined an accurate drawing of the ship with good artistic performance, executing the waves in a smooth manner. He often added a view of Marseilles with the fort in the background. Sometimes the works of the later Nicolas S. Cammillieri are confused with his works. Information about the artist and his oeuvre can also be found in our books "Ship Portrait Artists".
The FineArtEmporium might be interested in the purchase or brokerage of fine works by this artist. Please refer to our page "Contact" and send an e-mail to bais(at) with the information requested there. You will receive an answer usually within 48-72 hours (up to a week in rare cases).
