American Sail Ship
20th Century Oil On Board

Like most collectors and art dealers I often get hung up on “artist value” based on book and database listings and as a result the actual “visual value” often gets lost in the transactional process.   I cannot count the times I have talked to other dealers who admit they too often end up buying a “dead” painting just because it was a particular artist and in the end they are unable to sell it because of its lack of aesthetic desirability.   My own area of collecting is 19th century seascapes and portraits.

However, once in a while a piece out of my realm is so incredibly captivating, I cannot resist. Because the need to sell it will be overshadowed by the gratification of displaying it in my home or office for maybe several years will never be a source of anxiety.  As a matter of fact, I have a number of paintings I actually removed off my website because the pleasure they provided evolved and eventually outweighed the financial benefits. The description below is from the dealer I acquired it from.   However, I did not find much on “J Clark” or “John Clark” of the 20th century time period.  However, this seascape is so breathtaking, that a guide book or database of listed artists was irrelevant.  You don’t need a book to determine the brilliance in this painting.  It either “moves you” or it doesn’t.  And if this artist doesn’t have many “listings” today, how long before you think that is going to change?

I could go on and on about this amazing seascape art, but I'll let the images do the talking.  The below is from the original dealer.

This piece is a RARE FIND due to its size, age and beauty and is an original painting signed by VERY WELL listed American artist John Clark (20th Century) who is listed in the Davenport, Artprice and various other art indexes. This artist is a very well known Contemporary New York artist who is known for doing Early Genres. It is original Oil on Panel Board painting that depicts a beautiful Coastal Ocean Seascape with a nice American Sail Ship or Clipper of Frigate ship of an early time period with the American Flag waving and blowing in the wind at the back of the sail. This painting was done with great detail in both color and clarity with distinctive characteristics of the beautiful open seas on the horizon and giving a depiction of a beautiful ship with large and tall masts with very fine detail of the ropes and the front sails at the bow. It was well done with beautiful brush strokes and nice shades of tonalism in the sky with beautiful shading and reflections of the sun haze coming through off the waters down to the finest details of even the ropes and sail masts. This is a beautiful Genre of Early American sailing into the sunrise or sunset and was done with such fine detail.

Size: Framed 19x22.5"
