The War of 1812
Brig GRAND TURK of Salem
Early Watercolor

 
Watercolor on paper                                                   Unsigned
Unframed
22 1/2" L x 17" H                                       Framed 27 1/2" H x 21" L
 
Presented is an early work that replicates the watercolor in the collection of the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA of the French artist's Antoine Roux's watercolor showing the “Letter of Marque Grand Turk, 14 guns, entering and saluting Marseilles, 1815“.

The ship was built in 1812 at Wiscasset, Maine and registered 309 tons, and carried 14 guns. William Austin commanded her during the war.

“Letter of Marque Grand Turk 14 guns entering and saluting Marseilles, 1815” 

In a later period advertisement after the war, she was put up for sale at public auction at the India Wharf in Salem. The advertisement says that she performed five cruises during the war and is considered one of the best vessels in her class in the United States. Her arms and armament were sold afterwards  in a separate sale.

According to the Ship Registers of the district of Salem and Beverly Essex Institute in 1906, and related in a note affixed to the reverse, the brigantine "Grand Turk was built in Wiscasset, Maine, in 1812, and "was a celebrated privateer in the war of 1812." She was apparently owned in Boston and sailed in and out of Salem and after the war made merchant voyages for William Gray of Boston.”

                             1174 Brig GRAND TURK of Salem Saluting Marseilles

Watercolor
17 1/2 x 24 1/4 in., signed: Ant Roux au Marseille, 1815.
Built 1812, Wiscasset Maine, 309 tons, 14 guns William Austin commander.

          As in the Peabody-Essex Museum     
There is no question that the unknown artist has captured the Antoine Roux's work exactly and explains why the painting was originally misclassified as an original. 


CONDITION:
The watercolor is in excellent condition, but the paper shows age spotting or foxing foxing it a mottled sepia tone which is pleasing too the eye. The frame is a new reproduction of a period piece.

 

PROVENANCE: Purchased at auction in 2009. It was listed in the catalog as an original work attributed to Antoine Roux. This was corrected by an addendum saying it was an old artist study of the original, maybe dating from 1815, which is in the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. This is the first time it has been oferred for sale since. A similar and much later study was auctioned August, 2012 and sold for $4425.00 including Buyer's Premium..
