CLIPPER SHIP

ALFRED GABALI, 1886-1963 
German, American

 

 
 
 
Oil on canvas                                                     20th Century

Presented is a painting of an unidentifified clipper ship at dusk under storm canvas. She is heeling to leeward in storm tossed seas and dark clouds on a beam reach. A steamship is off her starboard bow passing well astern. The painting is signed and dated 1958 in the lower left, by marine artist Alfred Gabali, a man who first spent years at sea in tall ships, commanded a German coastal patrol boat in WW I, hid from the Nazis in Holland during WW II and immigrated to the United States in 1950. His background, training and art studies made him an artist with a true feeling of what he painted.
He is appreciated for his seascape, and sailing ship works which evidence the feelings of a true seaman.
The painting is a very heavy carved wood gilded frame weighs 22 pounds which is in excellent condition. The frame alone would cost $400.00 to replace. The condition of the painting is excellent.
           Signed Alfred Gabali, 1958

THE ARTIST: Alfred Gabali, born May, 1886 in Germany, left home at age 16 to become a seaman aboard the four masted bark Pamier. His formative years were spent on ships and in maritime school where he qualified as a ship's officer. During one of his passages, he was introduced to artist Scharns Alquis who later became his teacher.
 
After returning to Germany at the start of WW I, he became captain of a small coastal patrol boat which was lost at sea in a storm. How he spent the remaining war years is unknown. However, after the war he returned to sea until 1923 when he came home to Hamburg, Germany with his first wife to earn his living as an artist. She died in 1935. As a prelude to WW II, Gabali resisted the Nazi Movement and was forced to flee to Holland with his second wife where he lived in hiding until the end of WW II.
 
In 1949, Gabali and his wife came to the United States to begin a new life.He started his career again, in New York City, and then moved to Cape Cod. Gabali became a U.S. citizen in 1955, the summer he came to the Cape. 

He called his West Dennis studio the 'Grand Cove Art Studio'. He was a multiple year winner of Cape Cod Art Assoc. Galleries' show in Hyannis. Always a seaman, he had a painting of the whaling ship Bowhead he sailed in hanging in his studio as of 1956. He died in 1963.
