French School - Boats at Sea - 1894

Beautiful, bright oil on canvas painting depicting a marine scene. We can see in the foreground two sailing boats with their crews in rough seas. The beacon indicates that they are near the coast or a harbour. In the background on the horizon there is a steamboat and a tall ship. The painting dates from 1894 and is signed in the dark part of the wave in the bottom right corner but the artist’s signature is unclear.
