Overview

The third edition of The Dictionary of Sea Painters further enhances its stature as the pre-eminent reference guide in its field. Marine painting, as befits the historical importance of its subject, has a rich and varied heritage. The range stretches from the heroics of great artists such as Turner to the humble yet finely detailed harbour paintings intended for master mariners. The range of work between these two extremes is widely collected and admired, and the dictionary satisfies an ever-growing demand for authoritative information from collectors, dealers and auction houses. Other sections of the book offer a wealth of further information. There are detailed drawings of the stems and sterns of important ships, and maritime flags are illustrated in colour - an asset for the purposes of dating and identification.
