AMERICAN SHIP "PARAMOUNT"
PAINTING ON SILK

Oil on silk 20th Century                                                             Signed LR T. Hagiwara, Yokohama, 1946
Unframed 16 1/4" x 11 1/2"                                                     Framed 24 3/4" x 20 1/4"
 
 
Presented is a magnificent painting on silk of the American ship PARAMOUNT. It was painted by the Japanese pierhead painter T. Hagiwara in 1946. Hagiwara is a well known, but underrated artist. His works were mainly of contemporary steam vessels of his time and rarely of sailing vessels.

On the original dust cover of this painting was a penned notation which reads "From an original water color by Cassini - Smyrna Harbor circa 1854 ~ James Niles, 7/2/48". This notation has been preserved on the new dust cover of this recently re framed work. Smyrna is the third largest city in Turkey. We believe that Cassini is a misspelling of the correct artist copied who was Raffael Corsini (also spelled Corsini), a Turkish artist, who was active in Smyrna from 1835 - 1865. He specialized in ship portraits, mainly of American vessels. His works generally showed the vessel in profile off of Smyrna Harbor with other vessels in the background or foreground. Corsini's works sell for $8000 - $12000.00. We have pictured one of Corsini's paintings that is at auction by Skinner, Inc on June 7, 2007. It is the exact same scene.

The painting being offered is the Bark (Barque) PARAMOUNT flying all her sails. She is sailing close hauled on the port tack and majestically slicing through the brilliant blue water of Smyrna Bay approaching port which is typical of most ship portraits of this period. There are many sailing vessels anchored in the background to starboard beneath a walled fort. Just before her bow to port is a white hulled pulling boat with three crew. Off her stern is another fort with turrets beneath twin mountain peaks in the background. PARAMOUNT, whose name appears on the pennant flown from her main mast truck, and off center to the left below . The 36 star American flag, flying from her mizzen became official on July 4, 1865.

CONDITION:
The painting is under glass which allows the silk cloth upon which it is painted to be seen. The frame and matting are recent replacements. The condition of the painting is excellent. It is difficult to shoot pictures through glass, and the painting's colors are much more vibrant than seen here and the draftsmanship is excellent.

PROVENANCE:
The painting is from the collection of Mr. Townsend Hornor, a distinguished historian, sailor, philanthropist and businessman who died at age 78, on September 11, 2005 at his home in Osterville, Massachusetts. He served on numerous boards including the Woods hole Oceanographic Institute, former chairman, Cape Cod Hospital Foundation, former president, the Osterville Historic Society, a director of the Herreshoff Marine Museum, former chairman of the Naval War College Foundation as well as many others.
