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.

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).

Set of 3 Oil on Canvas Landscapes by Alfred Godchaux

TC2050 TC2042 TC2059 TC2051 TC2036 TC2032

Godchaux was a French painter, born in 1835, who painted port scenes along the Normandy coastline as well as beaches with fishermen and boats. His mountainous landscapes are of the Pyrenees and the Savoy mountains. Alfred liked big skies and panoramic views in his paintings that are traditional in design. Alfred signed his paintings in a very small and finely handled style sometimes etched into the drying paint so finely, a magnifying glass was required to see them. Emil Godchaux (1860- 1938) is thought to be his son as he worked in a similar style to his father painting similar sized subjects and places in a less defined approach, however, Emil signed his work in a larger, easy to read signature.

This set of 3 paintings from the French countryside is titled ‘From the mountains to the valley, to the sea’ and depicts a spectacular view of each, with very ornate but delicate matching gilt wood frames. Each painting measures 53 in – 134.6 cm wide, 27 ¾ in – 70.5 cm high and 3 in – 7.5 cm deep at the deepest point of the frame.

The price for this superb trio is £9,250.00.
