Yachts on Canvas

James Taylor

Artists' Images of Yachts from the Seventeenth Century to the Present Day. 


Truly international in its scope, Yachts on Canvas reproduces the finest achievements of some of the world's leading maritime artists. Rendered in a variety of media, including oil, watercolour, pen-and-ink and collage, these images expose the drama and romance that have for so long been associated with yachting life. From the Dutch van de Veldes and their elaborate portraits of seventeenth-century yachts, to the fresh and animated modes of the British contemporaries, Vaughan and Dews, this book spans various styles, times and nationalities.
