Large Sailor's Folk Art Woolwork or Woolie

 

A good and large sailor's woolwork or 'woolie' of a three masted frigate, sailing on an exceedingly choppy sea under moody skies and with cliffs and a lighthouse all too close.

British, mid 19th century.

 

With great sense of movement and drama, with good colours overall.  The woolie is on an old stretcher and has at a point in time been professionally laid onto a newer linen support.

 

In a fabulous period rosewood frame, under glass.

 

Sight:    22"  x  17”   (56cm x 43cm)

Frame:   28.5” " x 22.5”    (72cm x 57cm)

  

SOLD
