Yacht of the Hamburger Yachtclub of 1892 under full sail in the Baltic Sea, most likely during the International Regatta "Kieler Woche", ca. 1895 - Go back to the Yachting page - Photo Copyright is with the FineArtEmporium.
Here is a view with the valuable 19th Century gilted and engraved frame:
The above full view with the frame is the best picture available from the painting. It shows also the nice handling of the light and sea.
Another view of the painting without the frame:
Here now the first detail view of the Yacht with the fine details of the hull and in the sails. The second yacht is visible in the background:
and a second detail view of the background vessels at the left side:
and another more close-up view of the yacht itself:
and finally a picture how the back of the painting looks like (no relining):
This is a nice piece for the experienced collector who wants to have an oilpainting in his collection of one of the rarely painted and highly sought after 19th Century Sporting Yachts with their special charme. The unique type of this yacht - a cutter-bow Yawl, with the second mast at the end of the hull and the back sail placed outside over the water - which was built for sporting purpose only in a short period of time (mainly around the 1880s) - adds another appeal to this beautiful and historically important oilpainting.
