TC0796 TC0805 TC0809 TC0800 TC0802 TC0804

Salvatore Colacicco is a world-renowned marine artist who was born in 1935 in Bellagio, near Lake Como and studied at Brera Academy, Milan. He has been living in England for over thirty years. Nearly all Salvatore’s paintings during that time have been exported to the United States. These now adorn the walls of many a Board Rooms and Directors Office throughout the United States. Colacicco's traditional style of painting is influenced by the Marine artists of the 18th and 19th century with his own distinctive style. Among Colacicco's achievements are 26 panels illustrating the history and development of the paddle steamer, (of which he had made a special study of those used on the Italian Lakes), painted for the Russell Cotes Museum in Bournemouth. He has painted Schooners, Steamers, Yachts, Lake Como, Malta, British coastal scenes and Historical Man-O- War Marine Engagements.

This painting, C. 1990, depicts the British Red Fleet resting in Valletta Harbor, Malta. The ship in the foreground is one of the ten ships from the HMS Victory series. It measures 68 in – 173 cm in width, 44 ½ in – 113 cm high and 3 in – 7.5 cm deep, with an ornate carved gilt wood frame.

Isle of Wright Seaweed Gatherers by William Shayer Sn. (1787-1879)

TC0747 TC0742 TC0759 TC0756 TC0751 TC0764

This mid-19th C. painting depicts a small group of seaweed gatherers and their wagon on the Isle of Wright. The painting in total measures 60 ½ in – 153.7 cm wide, 48 ¾ in – 124 cm high with a depth of 3 ¾ in – 9.5 cm, and is signed by the artist in the lower right hand corner.

It is surrounded by a very ornate carved gilt wood frame and priced at £12,500.00.

Shayer was born in Southampton and after spells at Guildford and Chichester had settled permanently in his native city by 1820. He is principally known for his Hampshire landscapes and animal painting and his work is most closely associated with the New Forest, the Isle of Wight, Dorset, Sussex and Devon. His work falls into two main categories: woodland scenes, populated with gypsies, animals and cheerful rustics and coastal scenes such as this particular painting based around small boats, sea weed gatherers and fishermen and their families.

The death of Shayer's first wife in 1823 left him with five children to raise and made establishing himself as an artist all the more difficult. He was helped by the establishment of the Society of British Artists (with whom he went on to exhibit 388 works) and the opening of the Hampshire Picture Gallery in Southampton in 1827 and by the end of the decade his career was beginning to flourish. He also exhibited 6 at the Royal Academy between 1820 and 1843, and at the British Institution. He was certainly prolific and examples of his work can be found in many provincial museums. Four of his sons are known to have worked as artists the two most successful being William Joseph Shayer (1811 - 1892) and Henry T. Shayer (1825 - 1894).
