Hummingbear Vintage features unique (often whimsical) vintage and antique decorative items from various parts of the world.
This is lovely antique seascape depicting a sailing ship off a rocky coast. It is an oil painting on artist board and measures approximately 15.75" tall x 12.75" across. The painting is signed (E.M. Ray?) in the bottom right corner and appears to be from around the 1920s. The style is traditional but also quite expressive with a textured application of the paint conveying the roughness of the waters.
The painting is in good antique condition. It has darkened over the years with some surface dirt but the colors are still rich. The original paint is almost completely intact with some wear around the edges and the occasional scuff mark. The artist board is still solid with no cracks, damage or repairs.
Whether you chose to make the painting more formal by adding a frame or to display it as is, this is really a great piece to add to a collection of antique or nautical paintings. It would be wonderful in a coastal home and make a unique gift for a sailor or sailboat enthusiast!
