Paintings as illustrations
This book encapsulates the work of a lifetime
– not just the hours that Robert has spent in creating these superb paintings of the last sailing ships, but in his study of their construction, features, and history, so that they are faithfully portrayed and able to withstand the scrutiny of the most learned of critics.
We have included other marine paintings by Robert that demonstrate the versatility of his painting skills.
The book has a Buckram hardback with a printed dust jacket.
Size: 250mm x 280 mm, landscape format.
Number of pages: 240, printed on 150 gsm silk art paper, displaying 103 of Robert Carter’s paintings as Illustrations.
Supporting the paintings are the narratives that highlight salient features and aspects of the vessel portrayed and describe a ‘happening’, as well as being just a description of the ship.
