19th Century Stormy Seascape, After Clement Drew, circa 1880, an oil on board seascape with larboard side view of a bark weathering high storm-tossed waves, with the foresail and lower main topsail reefed, the upper topsails and top-gallants furled, and the other sails wind-torn to rags, unsigned.

The painting is very much in the style of Boston artist Clement Drew (active: 1840s – 1889) in composition and subject, but lacks his finesse in palette, missing his subtle hues often in sky breaking through the clouds. This is a folk art painting of a New England tempest blowing a full gale.

The painting remains in very good condition. The period gilded frame is likely the original, and also remains in good, strong condition with just the expected nicks and chips to the gilded gesso.
