Painting

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.

Print

Paysage d'Italie
1796-1875, French

Etching, image size 6 x 9 1/8 inches, cat: Melot- C.7, later printing without Cadart lettering, possibly after it was removed. This is a very nice impression with wide borders, printed on a medium weight cream colored laid type paper. This atmospheric image from Corot's series of Italian landscapes is a great example of his ability to capture the life and movement of the scene with loose spontaneous lines and rich tones.
