Description

NLS010822.20

Ship Portrait of the “Sophia Godfrey”, signed by the artist, Jurgan Fredrick Huge (1809-1878) of Bridgeport, Connecticut, dated 1870.  American, signed lower right “J.F. Huge, Bridgeport, Conn. 1870”. Watercolor on Paper.  Held in the original black painted and gilt decorated frame.

Why is it special? We are partial to Huge’s ability to capture motion in the waves, and his ability to create endless debates as to what time of day his portrait represents.
