In addition to other developing things here at SmartArtMarket, we are proud to be able to present a newly acquired piece by The Royal Academy artist, W.L.Wyllie. Acclaimed in his lifetime as the quintissential British maritime artist, he was a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers as well as the painter to The Royal Victoria Yatch Club. Widely exhibited among Britain’s finest collections, including London’s Tate Gallery, he won the Turner Gold Medal in 1869. The piece shown here is a stone lithograph and is signed in pencil by the artist.
