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

New York, Fulton Market, Fish
1881-1962, Austrian

Color etching and aquatint, image size 16 5/8 x 11 5/8 inches, 1930, edition of 100, pencil signed, framed. Luigi Kasimir was a pioneer in the field of color etching. Earlier artists would often apply color to single plate, but Kasimir developed a technique of using four to six plates, each with a different color to create extraordinarily rich tones and values. He specialized in city scenes and landmarks and traveled throughout Europe and America creating many spectacular color etchings, of which his New York scenes are some of the finest.
