Painting

Cutty Sark
1879-1967, American

This highly detailed painting of the clipper ship "Cutty Sark" is by noted American marine artist Frank Vining Smith (1879-1967). An oil on canvas created around 1930, it measures 30 x 40 inches and is signed by the artist in the lower right corner. This ship was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, holding the record time from Australia to Britain for a period of ten years. The name refers to the witch "Nannie Dee" in Robert Burns 1791 poem "Tam o'Shanter" and she is represented as the ships figurehead in a white "cutty sark" or short nightgown.

Print

Saugus Ironworks
1895-1975, American

This lovely drypoint of the Saugus Ironworks measures 6 7/8 x 10 7/8 inches. It is pencil signed, titled and numbered. Created in 1958, this scene is near Lynn, Massachusetts, on the banks of the Saugus River, where iron was first produced in commercial quantities in 1646. After being restored, the Saugus Ironworks is now a National Hictoric Site and a unit of the National Park System of the United States. Chamberlain became well known for his carefully rendered etchings and drypoints of both European and American buildings and cityscapes as well as very detailed landscapes.
