Art Wanted: Sell your 19th Century Ship Portrait

We are looking for works by:

Tindall, Benjamin (British, active 1846-1880) - Oilpaintings and a few Watercolors
Worked and lived in Hull and probably for some time in London, Great Britain.
Ship Portraits, mainly of Sailing Vessels, often in two positions
Prices depend on subject, size, date, quality and condition. Please send us an e-mail to receive an exact offer for your painting (free of charge for persons considering to sell their painting).
Tindall´s style is rather accomplished in every aspect, the handling of the sky and sea is somewhat "romantic" and remembers to the marine art of the first half of the 19th Century. Information about the artist can also be found in our book "Ship Portrait Artists".
The FineArtEmporium might be interested in the direct 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).
