This is a beautiful dramatic 19th century oil on canvas painting of a boat on stormy seas. The colour green used is stunning which gives this a very decorative look and moody feel. The paint is extremely thick which gives the painting a lovely texture as well. The canvas material is very heavy which is quite unusual. But what happened in the 19th century an earlier, is if the artist couldn't afford a canvas they would use an old sack and I believe that is what this is. It adds an extra level of history to the piece that I feel compliments the subject perfectly. The piece is signed B Hardy on the front and on the back there is a pencil note top right with the full name, Bernadotte Hardy with the location of where the painting was done. It is in French and I haven't been able to find this out I am afraid. It is a stunning piece and I personally love everything about it.
