Yachts on Canvas: Artists' Images of Yachts from the Seventeenth Century to the Present Day, Taylor, James
17 Yachts on Canvas: Artists' Images of Yachts from the Seventeenth Century to the Present Day Taylor, James
Very Good. 
Hardcover. Handsome 1st U.S. edition coffee-table hardcover with dustjacket 1998 Knickerbocker Press. New, but heavy store wear due to size: edge-crumpling to jacket; corners rubbed. Very clean; no marks. 160pp; Index; Bibliography. Language: English. NOTE: Large format-- cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope; may require additional international postage. From publisher: '[R]eproduces the finest achievements of some of the world's leading maritime artists. Rendered in a variety of media, including oil, watercolor, pen-and-ink and collage, these images expose the drama and romance that have for so long been associated with yachting life. From the Dutch van de Veldes and their elaborate portraits of 17th-century yachts, to the fresh and animated modes of the British contemporaries, Vaughan and Dews, this book spans various styles, times and nationalities. Buttersworth's celebrated depictions of the schooner yacht America, the spirited work of the lumunist Fitz Hugh Lane, and the much-loved portraits and royal yachts and races by Wilkinson and Wyllie, are just a few of the better-known images examined in this book, which also introduces works by Flemish, Neapolitan and Australian painters. James Taylor's comprehensive text accompanies the compositions. In addition to providing a detailed study alongside each image, the author also presents a chronological history of the yacht. Bonham's, Christie's, Sotheby's, the New York Yacht Club, the Royal Cork Yacht Club and the Royal Yacht Squadron have all contributed towards the collation of these paintings, many of which have never before been published. Not since the 1920s has a serious study of yachting art been undertaken, and never before has such a book been as diverse and international in its selection. '
