Charles Bentley (british 1806 - 1854) "shipping In Choppy Seas", W/c, Framed For Sale
A painter of marine scenes, becoming a member of the Watercolor Society in 1843. Represented in the British Museum, Blackburn, Victoria and Albert, Norwich. We have here a wonderfully atmospheric watercolor of a "Shipping Scene in Choppy Seas", done with a nice glowing light breaking through the clouds. It is signed and dated lower right, "C. Bentley 1850". The image size is 11-3/4" by 15-3/4". The rather appropriately nautical-looking frame measures 19-1/4" by 23-1/4". The paper is lightly toned, but overall it is very good condition. The frame has some chipping around the edges and is somewhat soiled from age. Can be shipped without the glass!
