Art Wanted: Sell your 19th Century Ship Portrait

We are looking for works by:

McFarlane, Duncan (British, 1818-1865) - Oilpaintings on canvas
Lived and worked in Liverpool, Great Britain (it has been suggested that he lived in Boston, Massachusetts in his later years)
Ship Portraits of larger Sailing Vessels.
Prices starting at BP 4,500 (Great Britain) or $ 8,000 (in the USA). 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).
McFarlane is one of the leading artists of the Liverpool School around the middle of the 19th century. His paintings combine great artistic performance and flawless depiction of nautical details. A typical characteristic is a seagull flying over the water in the foreground. Information about the artist and his oeuvre can also be found in our book "Ship Portrait Artists".
