From our European Collection, a lovely and substantially-sized 19th century nautical oil painting of ships in a European port, signed and dated S. Brade 1871. This painting is in excellent condition with only the typical fine craquelure expected in paintings of its age. UV light inspection suggests possible small random areas of touch-up to the sky, but otherwise this piece has survived well in fine original, essentially unrestored condition.
Provenance: De-accessioned from a Boston area museum.
Size: A nice large painting with image size of 36 inches wide x 20 inches tall. This painting has now been re-stretched over new board, awaiting final framing, or it can actually be hung as is from wire and eyelet hooks in the back.
