About this title


Since the seventeenth century, artists everywhere have been fascinated by yachts.

Whether drawn to the vigor of ocean racing or the quiet nostalgia of cruising, they have found the yacht to be a rich and relentless artistic source. Truly international in scope, "Yachts on Canvas" reproduces the finest achievements of some of the world's leading maritime artists. Oils, watercolors, pen-and-ink, collages - these images span the various styles, times and nationalities of yachting. James Taylor's comprehensive text accompanies the compositions. In addition to providing a detailed study alongside each image, the author also presents a chronological history of the yacht. Bonham's, Christie's, Sotheby's, the New York Yacht Club, the Royal Cork Yacht Club and the Royal Yacht Squadron have all contributed towards the collation of these paintings, many of which have never before been published. The broad and diverse nature of this international selection means that it is of interest to many: not only to yachting and art enthusiasts, but also to collectors, auction houses and historians.
