Gallery of Old Ship Portraits and Marine Paintings
Dutch School - Yacht Regatta on the North Sea or
Atlantic, ca. 1880 – several sailing boats and yachts
are racing on the open sea, one boat shown closely in
the foreground (with three sailors on board), two others
can be found in the middleground and several more in
the background – Oil on canvas – 59 x 88 cm (23 1/4
x 34 5/8 in.) – not relined, old wear and crackle, otherwise
good condition - Private Collection New York, NY, USA
Note: Regatta scenes from
this early period of the sailing sport can only rarely
be found. This unsigned example shows a nice handling
of the water, sky and the boats. With this period oil
painting you can purchase one of the most desirable
and appreciated motif in marine art (Regatta scenes).
