A wonderful limited art print hand signed and numbered by the artis. Number 24 of 500. "Spanish Galleon" Professionally framed and matted. This great piece measures 22 x 28 overall measurement. Jim Campbell, well known nautical artist born in Detroit Michigan in 1928. In the course of his sailing ship research, he has become a historian as well. He revels in the telling of tales and debunking myths created by authors to suit their stories. While working for the Examiner in San Francisco, Jim became enchanted with ships in the bay. At this point, his interest in maritime art began. Sketching the fishermen, cargo vessels and old wharf buildings was the start of his career. People watching him draw often would say, what are you asking for that drawing, and would you sign it! He has been introduced as, "Oh, you're the artist that draws the ships." In galleries and museums where he often works at his drawing board. Jim relates little-known facts, trivia and fascinating tidbits about the days of the sail.Would be a beautiful gift for the person who loves ships, or that has a nautical themed home. BEAUTIFUL CONDITION!!
