Image of Yacht Painting

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). Photo Copyright is with the FineArtEmporium.
