A pair of late 19th Century, oils on board, seascapes, titled “Rough Seas” attributed to William Broome. Continuity between the two paintings is carried through by depicting the same French sailboat in rough waters with big waves. One painting shows the French sailboat accompanied by an early steamer, leaving a harbor. The other painting shows the French sailboat with two schooners, farther away from the harbor. One schooner displays a Danish flag.
Each weighs approximately 10 lbs.
Each oil on board with the frame: H= 19.5 in. W= 25.5 in. D= 3 in.
Each oil on board without the frame: H= 11.5 in. W: 17.5 in.
