Image of Italian Ship Portrait

Italian Pierhead Painter in Naples (19th Century) - Portrait of the Canadian Brigantine *Grace (of) St. John`s, Newfoundland - Rob. B. Giles Master* ca. 1880 - the vessel is shown under full sail in the Bay of Naples with Vesuvius beyond inscribed as shown above in the centre water section - Gouache on paper - 46 x 63 cm (18 by 25 inch) Private Collection Canada

Note: Many Italian gouaches are unsigned and it is difficult to attribute them to a certain artist because the style of the different pierhead painters working in Naples (and Italy at all) was often quite similar. It might be possible that this is a picture from the workshop of Luigi Roberto, who was one of the most active painters in this harbor.
