English John Callow Original Oil Painting on Canvas "Shipping in the Medway"

About

English original large oil painting on canvas signed: J(ohn) CALLOW in gold leaf frame. An exciting marine scene of working and sailing ships in choppy water with the coast of England in the background. Relined and restored as needed, circa 1860. John Callow (1822-1878) is a well known painter of marine subjects and landscapes. His family produced many artists, including his brother William a renowned watercolorist. William took John to Paris at age 13 to induce him to become an artist instead of a sailor. As he studied and developed his style he became intensely interested in painting. He return to England in 1844 where he became in 1849 a member of the prestigious Watercolor Society. There he exhibited a total of 352 works in his lifetime. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, the Royal Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street. His marine subjects are where he excels, his seas are dramatically portrayed and his rendering of ships is based on years of observation and the love of the maritime world. His work is well represented in public collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; British Museum; National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh; Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery and over 20 other museums and galleries throughout the world.
