Art Gallery of Old Ship Portraits and Marine Paintings

Ship Portrait of the British Schooner *Teazer - W. Rich Master* at sea 1898 - the vessel is shown under full sail with a paddle steamer and a local light ship in the background - Gouache on paper, 54 x 74 cm - signed lower right and dated, inscribed with title in the centre - in a period mahogony and walnut frame, good condition - Oporto Collection Portugal

Note: Tompson Swan was a Pierhead Painter from Norfolk in England with a small Ouevre only. The Schooner *Teazer* was a herring drifter from the fishing harbour Great Yarmouth (see also the YH No. in the main sail and on the hull) on the Englisch south east coast. This is an interesting composition by the artist with the lightship on the right and the well depicted crew (and master) on board.
