Ships and seascapes: an introduction to maritime prints, drawings and watercolours
An introduction to maritime prints, drawings and watercolours which is written for experts and enthusiasts alike. The text includes a historical survey tracing the development of marine art and exploring the technique and subject-matter of the pictures.
Although the most famous seventeenth century Dutch maritime painters are covered, the author concentrates on lesser known (and less expensive) works from 1800 onwards that are readily available to the collector. The book addresses important questions about maritime drawings and prints, from the subject and location to larger questions of connoisseurship.
