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.
