Schnars-Alquist (1855 to 1939) was a respected German marine artist who was chosen to paint seascapes and landscapes for the Imperator's First Class dining room.

The original was painted by Carl Wilhelm Hugo Schnars-Alquist in 1918, not long before the end of the vessel's career as a German greyhound.

Framed, it's about 40-3/4" x 28-1/4". Rarely have I seen a seascape that conveys the, frankly, SCARY awesomeness of a single boat on a relentless and huge ocean. But there she is, queen of all she surveys.

I swear, if you stare at it, the waves seem to start moving. No stains, no foxing, no fading, no problems at all.

This is spectacularly framed and under glass, so I'm not ripping the back off to find lithography info. Judging by the chip carved and gold leaf / gilt frame, I'd place it in the 1920s to 1940s. VERY HEAVY.

Rare-ish vintage / antique litho, wonder maritime / marine seascape. Very upscale frame and significant size, ready to dominate a room or showcase a marine art collection. The only other one of these I've ever seen for sale was priced at $900 unframed.

US shipping will be parcel post for $35 with the frame. OR I can take it out of the frame and send it in a new poster tube sent Priority for $12, send me a convo so I can change it for you if you want to buy it.

International buyers: I CAN NOT SHIP IT FRAMED, but can ship it in a poster tube w/o the frame. The s&h quoted in this listing is for the lithograph UNFRAMED.
