Art Wanted: Sell your 19th Century Ship Portrait

We are looking for works by:

Napier, George Alexander (Scottish, 1828-1869) - Oilpaintings on canvas
Lived and worked in Glasgow, Scotland
Ship Portraits of Sailing Vessels and Steamers.
Very few paintings were offered in the past years, therefore a reliable price range is not available. 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).
Napier´s style was influenced by the Liverpool School to which his paintings can be compared. But as he had a very limited output he is not so well known and sought after. Information about the artist can also be found in our book "Ship Portrait Artists".
The FineArtEmporium is interested in the direct purchase of fine works by Napier 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).
