This is a stunning painting by noted American marine artist Frank Vining Smith (1879-1967). This dramatic scene of a ship with foul weather rigging is painted in oils on canvas and measures 36 x 42 inches, painted c. 1930. It is signed by the artist in the lower right corner and comes in a very fine modern gilt frame. Frank Vining Smith was born and raised on Cape Cod Massachusetts and had a strong affinity with the ocean from a very young age. He studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston under Frank Benson, Philip Hale and Edward C.
