WILLIAM GAY YORKE

New York/Canada/England, 1817-c. 1888

Cutter yacht Melvina racing.

Signed and dated lower left "Wm. G. Yorke June 187[3]".
Oil on canvas, 20.75" x 27.25". Framed 24" x 30.75".

  • Provenance:
    Skinner, Inc., Boston, February 2003.
    The Kelton Collection of Marine Art & Artifacts.

    Notes:
    Reminiscent in style to J.E. Buttersworth, this strong painting of the cutter yacht
    Melvina was executed well before Yorke's 1882 accident. The signature is in a straight line with the date "June 187[3]", suggesting the work to be pure William Gay Yorke.
