19th Century China Trade American Ship Painting

$7,800

About

Possibly the Niantic, a whale ship that traveled to China around 1840 and then back to San Francisco during the gold rush. It is a very similar style and has the same number of guns. The ship was later turned into a hotel in San Francisco. The painting measures 20.75" x 24" with frame. The China Trade School of painting were works produced by Chinese artist in the 19th century for ships visiting the Cantons to bring back to their home ports across the world. This particular painting came from a private collection in France where it had lived for many years. It was filthy dirty and was conservation cleaned and a new bespoke frame added. The painting is canvas laid to board and had heavy craqueleur, which is still very visible from the sides in raking light. The craqueleur is a good sign as most early China trade paintings have this. They were ofter transported rolled up and then hung above fireplaces for many years.
