Malta Sailing Marine Painting Luigi Galea (1847-1917)

Luigi Maria Galea (1847-1917) is the well-known 19th Century Maltese artist of this maritime painting which appears to be a passenger-ferrying vessel, likely off the coast of Malta, and the Port of Valletta, in the Mediterranean, with shoreline buildings becoming faint in the background, approaching inclement weather evidenced by the darkening sky, and rough, choppy waves in the foreground. Signed "L. Galea" lower right. Oval oil painting on board, measures approximately 11" x 6" (27.94 x 15.24cm), with period frame measuring 17" x 13" x 1.75" (43.18 x 33.02 x 4.44cm). Excellent condition, with the occasional age crack to the giltwood over gesso frame. c. 1890.
