Presented is an oil on canvas-board
by the listed artist Luca Papaluca of Naples, Italy who was quite prolific as a Pier Head Painter in the last part of
the 19th Century and the early 20th Century. He is mainly noted for his water colors and gouaches, but on a few occasions
worked in oil. His ship and yacht portraits bring considerable sums, and his oil paintings of historical subjects are
quite rare. A very similar painting by the artist is this one of near the same size, 26 1/4″ x 17 1/4″, which sold
at auction in January, 2006 for $1135.00.
