Please read this letter before you scroll down and be sure to read and understand my descriptions of the paintings that I list on BEFORE YOU offer
First of all, these paintings are mostly between 100 and 300 years old.
They have come directly from the walls of Old English Country Houses and Stately Homes andeven Castles.
I describe their condition honestly and mention all defects in the paintings and the frames. I use the same terms of description as used by the top 3 sale houses.
If you want something that looks new and in a perfect new frame there are plenty of reproduction paintings on in brand new frames so I suggest this will be more suitable for you.
Should you have a deep pocket, I suggest that you buy at a leading Art Gallery and pay retail price for a fully restored painting costing many TENS OF THOUSANDS of £££’s or $$$’s
What I offer are once in a lifetime buying opportunities.
Within a few years from there will be fewer old paintings available.
So buy now while I am still sourcing fine works of art.
Please also consider my low start price and reasonable realistic reserve which will be far below its value.
You may get a bargain below what I paid for it.
Some of my regular buyers are art dealers and galleries.
Please also read my footnote at the bottom of the page re. Antique frames.
I offer a full refund if you are dissatisfied with paintings
Paintings must be returned in the same condition as when shipped to you with full tracking and a new tracking #
OFFERED HERE IS A STUNNING VERY RARE, BEAUTIFUL, GREAT LOOKING MARITIME ANTIQUEOILPAINTING
This painting is of Maritime Museum Quality
A RARE signed and dated OIL ON CANVAS OF a Barquentine at sea SIGNED LOWER De Simone '80 (1880)
Antonio De Simone (c.1850-1920)
Among the 19th and 20th century ship portraitists who practiced in Italian seaport cities, the father and son, Tommaso and Antonio de Simone are probably the best known. The son, Antonio de Simone worked in watercolor and watercolor variants, chiefly but not limited to gouache, while Tommaso, the father, is noted for working exclusively in oils.
Antonio specialized in portraits of the great society yachts of the period, successfully capturing just about every important private yacht to visit Naples. These fine portraits were commissioned by the owners to show their vessels at anchor under Mount Vesuvius during their Mediterranean cruises. A noted aspect of his paintings is his use of a brilliant cerulean blue to portray sea and sky.
Works by both Antonio and Tommaso de Simone are well known and recognized throughout the seafaring community. Their paintings have been sought out and acquired by many of the world's foremost museums and collectors. In recent years the investment value of works by the de Simones has increased dramatically as their paintings become more scarce and increasingly sought after. Their headland coastal views are some of the best to be found.
The painting is signed and dated on the bottom left corner ( see image # 4)
