George Chambers
1803-1840, British

Whitby, Yorkshire
1803-1840, British

Oil on canvas, 12 1/2 x 15 5/8 inches, c. 1830, signed "Chambers- Whitby" on the back of the sinking ship. A dramatic scene of a shipwreck in the stormy seas. Chambers was a painter from Whitby, Yorkshire, who specialized in seascapes. He was the son of a fisherman, and as a young boy served as a cabin boy on a merchant ship. He later spent some time in London as a set painter for the Pavillion Theater. Chambers was best known for his paintings of ships and naval battles, many of which are in museums and galleries in Britain.

Painting

Harbor Nocturne

This is an atmospheric moonlit scene of a ship coming in to harbor, painted in oil on Academy Board and measuring 15 1/8 x 11 inches. It is obscurely signed "H. G. Lask..?" in the lower right corner; although we have not been able to determine the identity of the artist, this painting is certainly done by a skilled hand, very much in the style of James Gale Tyler. A very fine 19th century painting in an ornate period gilt frame.
