Ships, Ships, Ships, more Dutch Ocean Riding Vessels.

This painting was bought on eBay with a Certificate Of Authenticity and guaranteed authentic and original on 06 January 2014 from Sulis Fine Art. Provenance; Egerton Family- 19th Century Watercour. After purchase  I had it professionally framed with archival glass.  Very beautifully done with what it looks like watercolor brush work and the use of a cut reed as a fine pen.

This lovely little ink & watercolour brush & cut read pen drawing and painting is actually signed Vincent 1888 on the left hand side.

 

Totally amazing signature wouldn't you agree?

Vincent had all kinds of ideas of making paintings & of what to paint & how to make extra money. Here you can see how he painted this fish market painting at the waterfront at the Hague capital in the Netherlands.  What a fantastic work of art to escape the public's & art experts eye for all these years. It does have that same feelings of his painting of The Lottery, like a sense of despair.  The lady I bought it from told me it was her friends husbands painting that he had bought in Europe when he lived there. He insisted the painting be hung over their fireplace for all their married life. She said her friend had a strong dislike for this painting and wanted to sell it to me having her bring it in to my art gallery to sell.  She said her friends husband had died and she just wanted it off her wall and had her bring it to my gallery telling me she would take anything I offer her that was reasonable. After examining the painting I then told her I thought and believed this work was a very valuable painting painted by Vincent van Gogh. I had her call her friend to tell her the news and after calling and telling her she took the phone away from her ear and asked what I would give her friend while she was on the phone with her. I hymmed and hawed for a minute and then said all I'd be able to give her now at this time was $175.00 and another $175.00 in thirty days, totaling $350.00. Her friend agreed very happily on the phone she said. She then left the painting in my care and took my check for $175.00 while giving me her friends address where to send the balance in thirty days.  

Beautiful painting of Vincent's Saint Peter's Boat in The Sea of Galilee
