Overview

An introduction to maritime prints, drawings and watercolours which is written for experts and enthusiasts alike. The text includes a historical survey tracing the development of marine art and exploring the technique and subject-matter of the pictures.

The book addresses important questions about maritime drawings and prints, from the subject and location to larger questions of connoisseurship.
