You can get yourself a reproduction on canvas of any painting for cheap

 

i have gotten myself before a reproduction on canvas of Cossacks in the Mountain River by Franz Roubaud, 36x25 inches, for £50/$65/€58 in total by buying the reproduction on canvas offf amazon ( i contacted the seller to have the size custom and the colors custom as the one displayed on amazon was too pale ), and then buying the wooden frame and a canvas stretcher separately.

 

There are specialized websites but they are much more expensive, the quote for what i wanted was anywhere between 2 to 4 times more, sometimes for smaller sizes, ready made.

 

I am now looking towards buying a maritime art reproduction in canvas the same way and thought some of you might be interested in doing the same without spending lavish sums.

 

Just make sure that the quality and color are good enough beforehand, don't hesitate to ask the seller any questions. Larger reproductions require larger resolution copies, if the seller does not have a good enough picture you may try to find one yourself and send it to them.

I think Turners HMS Temeraire is the most evocative Painting,you really get the sadness of the loss of such a beautiful Ship being towed to its eventual demise by the thing that would replace Sail and revoloutionise Naval Warfare......................Steam!

Indeed. This painting has to be not only one of the most famous paintings of age of sail ships, but also one of the most sad. From this we see the end of an era, and the beginning of the modern age of naval warfare. It's the defining painting that shows precisely where my interest is and is not.

Not Stricly a painting but some very Early Photos of the Last of the Wooden Ships!

 

hmsconway_zpsuh2izjsx.jpg

Photo taken in the Menai Strait mid-April 1953.  On 14th April 1953 HMS Conway was under tow from her normal mooring to Birkenhead up the Menai Strait/ the Swellies between the Welsh mainland and Anglesey.  Close to a place called the Platters on the Caernarfon side of the strait she ran aground due to strong currents and could not be refloated.  She caught fire 30th October 1956 during dismantling and burnt to the waterline.

Escadre de Richard Howe en vue de Gibraltar 1782

HMS Victory, the blue flag of Admiral Howe at her mainmast, leads a fleet of 65 warships and transports to lift the Great Siege of Gibraltar, 11 October 1782, in this oil painting by Richard Paton.

To the right, flying white ensigns, is the van under Vice-Admiral Samuel Barrington onboard HMS Britannia, and to the left the rear under Vice-Admiral Mark Millbanke onboard HMS Ocean. In the background is the Franco-Spanish fleet moored in Algeciras Bay.
