Oil on canvas 20th Century
Signed Jerome Howes LR
Unframed 23 1/2" L x 11 1/2"
Framed 28 3/4" x 16 3/4"
We Believe Jerome Howes to be One of the Great
Marine Artists of the 20th Century
Presented is a contemporary oil painting in the classic marine style of the 19th
Century. It is of four ships returning to Liverpool, England that were damaged in a series of gales that struck in January,
1866. First in line after Pilot Boat "8" is RMS Athenium. Next is the Barque Richard Cobden, then the Barque Lord Dufferin,
and finally the Coaster Persia. The pilot boat in the foreground is a gaff headed schooner under shortened canvas. All the
ships are heeling to leeward and shows the wind is still blowing.
The sky is bluish grey with many dark clouds. A truly breath
taking work done in the style of the 1800's. On the lower right, it is signed Jerome Howes. A old style wood and gilded frame
is included. The condition of the painting is excellent and should be considered a recent work done in the style of the period
by a maritime artist of growing renown.

Jerome Howes was born May 25, 1955, a thirteenth generation Cape Codder. His father was a paintings and
antiques dealer in Brewster who specialized in marine paintings and artifacts and had an extensive private collection of 19th
century ship portraits, both sail and steam. Howes grew up with a deep appreciation of the American painting tradition, and
especially the marine tradition.
Largely self-taught, in 1994 Howes devoted himself to painting and quickly gained
a name and a following on his native Cape Cod, and Nantucket and the Vineyard. Howes currently divides his time between the
rural landscape of Vermont, where he lives with his wife and three daughters, and Cape Cod.
AND SEASCAPES were a favorite subject of master painters of many nationalities and provide a lasting remembrance
of a romantic and beautiful period when sailing ships ruled the oceans. Some of the better known American painters who recorded
this period of our history were James and Thomas Butterworth, Antonio Jacobsen, Fitz Henry Lane, John Stobart and William
Stubbs to mention only a few. Jerome Howe is joining this list of dignitaries, and some of his luminescent scenes remind one
of Lane's use of light.
