Attributed to Thomas Willis
American School, New York.
Portrait of The Ship Annie
Ca. 1900.
Mixed Medium:  Oil on canvas with stitched fabric and velvet for the vessel
29 1/2″ x 42″
Excellent condition, retains original backboards with newspaper lining identifying the origin to New York.  In a rosewood veneer frame.  Willis worked primarily in the Hudson Valley area along the river.  His medium alone is perhaps the most unique feature.  This example is one of Willis’ best quality works with great attention to the details of the vessel and rigging.  The detail of the background landscape is another notable feature.
