R.B.Spencer
Antique 19th century English Yacht and Warship at sea off the English coast

Circa 1860

US$4,950

About

Antique English marine View of pff the English coast, with yachts and a warship sailing just outside a harbor. R. B. Spencer is known for his portraits of ships. It is thought that he is the brother of William Barnett Spencer who painted the same subject. Both artists also painted sea battles copied from other artist's engravings in their own style. Many of his paintings are similar to the work of Thomas Buttersworth and he may have been a copier of Buttersworth's paintings. This is a very fine example of the artist's work. It came from a private collection in the Uk. The painting has been framed in the Uk with a handmade gold leaf frame. See similar examples in the Falmouth Marine Museum, UK
