Oil painting, passenger ferry, early morning
Sold by Items of Value, Inc
The style of this painting , its relatively large size, type of boat ,and the style of the frame suggest that the painting was done in the early 20th century. It is a "mood" scene, depicting passengers on a small ferry boat about to leave in the early morning in a haze to traverse the water to their destination, possibly the other side of a river. The emphasis is twofold, first the expanse of water and the weather, secondly the passengers in a relatively small ferry. The feeling is portense as the passengers await their trip on the open water. The painting is script signed in black bottom right, however, we cannot make out the name. The frame is dark goldtone with large molded foliage in the corners and smaller version at midpoints of the long sides of the frame. Canvas has been remounted in the frame and appears free of holes/patches.
