This painting is a fine example of the work of the popular French marine artist
Victor Charles Edouard Adam.
His family moved to Le Havre in 1873 where his father, Edouard Adam (1847-1929), who was a very accomplished ship painter, became a very successful ‘Pierhead Painter’.
Victor Adam was taught by his father and worked out of the same studio painting commissions for ship’s owners and captains.
-
The 'Wild Flower' is an interesting transitional steam and sail vessel. I have been informed that she was built in the shipyard of Robert Thompson in Southwick on the River Wear in Sunderland. She was launched in 1889. Unfortunately she was wrecked in 1895 last seen passing the Delaware Breakwater on 31/12/1895 en route from Philadelphia to Rouen with a cargo of crude oil.
-
The picture is very decorative and ready to hang.
Painting is in good condition. The canvas has been re-lined within the last 20 years and it has been recently professionally cleaned.
The 19th century gilded frame is in good condition commensurate with its age.
