Art Wanted: Sell your 19th Century Ship Portrait

We are looking for works by:

Wheldon, James (British, 1832-1895) - Oilpaintings on canvas
Lived and worked in Hull, Great Britain.
Ship Portraits, predominately local sailing vessels, steamers and whaling ships.
So few works by this artist are offered 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).
His style is rather lively and often other shipping appears in the background, usually the ship is depicted in one position under full speed. More information about the artist and his oeuvre can be found in our books "Ship Portrait Artists" and "World Register of Ship Portraits Edition 1999/2000" (coming in spring 1999).
The FineArtEmporium is interested in the direct purchase of fine works by this artist 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).
