A fine luminist seascape by American artist Franklin Dullin Briscoe (1844-1903) The painting measures 14X11 inches, painted on academy board. Signed lower left. Housed in a period gilt frame. "History and marine painter Franklin Dullin Briscoe was born in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1844 and studied in Philadelphia with Edward Moran in 1860. Like many of his contemporaries, he then went abroad to further his artistic education, visiting London and Paris before returning home and establishing his studio in Philadelphia. Briscoe made several more ocean voyages during his career, experiences that inspired the dramatic seascapes and shipping scenes for which he is today best known. The weather was an especially important factor in his work, whether capturing fishermen returning after a long day’s work under calm, luminist skies to his paintings of storm-tossed ships and sailors at the mercy of the wind and waves."
