Reverse Painting on Glass - Clipper Ship 1 thumbnailReverse Painting on Glass - Clipper Ship 2 thumbnail
Reverse painting on glass of the extreme clipper ship "Witch of the Wave" by John Williams, an artist from Great Barrington, Ma. Painting was done in 1958 and signed by the artist on the reverse paper backing. The "Witch of the Wave" was built in Portsmouth, NH in 1852 and had a very storied history. Easy to find the story of the ship with a simple on-line search. Nice piece of art of a local ship with a great history. Sorry about the three white flash spots in the photo - not a great photographer. Painting measures 8 1/4" X 10 1/4" and the frame measures 12 1/4" X 14 1/4. Painting is on two pieces of glass to give it some depth and perspective. Front piece has the waves and the back piece has the clipper and waves.
