New England seascape painting, watercolor depicting a wreck at Noank Harbour, Connecticut, painted June of 1976 by William A. Youngblood, #3 in a series of pictures of this shipwreck. Mr Youngblood is a listed arist still living and painting American coastal towns and harbors. If you search the net, you will find more of his works, but his latest pictures tend to be of the mid-Atlantic and southern states, around Virginia and North Carolina. Youngblood pictures of New England are not often found on the market today.
This is a very unusual picture, of exceptional quality and detail, and really has the flavor and ambiance of the New Enlgand coastline. The subject matter is of very high interest. The the pics here don't do the piece justic at all. It is much more vibrant and crisp in person, and you really get a sense of what it's like to stand in front of this aging vessel as it sits on the calm harbor water.
We have taken the liberty of having this one professionally framed. A vintage/antique frame was used in solid cherry with a warm dark wild cherry finish which really suits the pices brilliantly. The original matt from the gallery that sold it in the 1970s is present. It is in perfect original condition with no flaws and has been properly stored.
We have used past sale records and the artist's own site for pricing guidance, although we believe the unavailability of his New England works may make the pricing here very conservative. The extreme desirability of shipwreck portraits should add a premium to value and make your investment really secure.
