Prices depend on subject, size, date, quality and condition. Please send us an e-mail to receive an exact offer for your painting (free of charge for persons considering to sell their painting).
The depicted sailing ships, like brigs and barques, are drawn accurately and he does not miss a single detail. For the background Cammillieri often chose Valetta harbor. Information about the artist and his oeuvre can also be found in our book "Ship Portrait Artists".
