Return to Collection  :: Return to Harbor Views  

Most western style ship portraits and harbor views created by 19th century Chinese artists for export to foreign markets are unsigned. Identifying individual China Trade artists with specific paintings is made more difficult by the fact that many examples were produced by studios of artists with several different craftsmen working on the same painting.
