Item Details
Description
ARTIST: Charles Lundgren (New York, Connecticut, 1911 - 1988)
NAME: Golden Hind Sailing Ship
YEAR: 1983
MEDIUM: acrylic on board
CONDITION: Board missing lower right corner. No visible inpaint under UV light.
SIGHT SIZE: 20 x 19 inches / 50 x 48 cm
BOARD SIZE: 26 x 24 inches / 66 x 60 cm

NOTE: This painting was published on the Fleetwood First Day Cover for the U.S. 20c Roanoke Voyages stamp issued July 13, 1984. On December 13, 1577, Francis Drake set sail from Plymouth Sound, England, on a daring three year odyssey that would take him into oceans hitherto explored only by the Spanish. Drake and about 160 men ventured forth in five vessels: the flagship the Pelican (which he later renamed the Golden Hind), the Elizabeth, the Marigold and the supply ships Swan and Benedict. Of the five, only the Golden Hind and a crew of about fifty men completed the voyage. After safely passing through violent storms in the Strait of Magellan, Drake raided Spanish settlements along the west coast of South America. Drake captured two vessels with cargoes of gold, silver and jewels that were so heavy, they caused the Golden Hind to sail below her watermark. Continuing northward, Drake sighted what is now Canada's west coast. But bitter cold forced him to turn back, and he set a course south and Islands), where he negotiated a treaty with the local sultan. From Java to Sierra Leone on the Cape of Good Hope -- 9,700 miles -- Drake sailed without a port of call or a stop for maintenance, for it had been nearly three years since the voyage had begun. Upon his return to England in September of 1580, he was greeted as a national hero. Queen Elizabeth I came on board his ship to knight him Sir Francis Drake. His fortune and reputation as a brilliant navigator were made -- and the way was opened for England to become a global seapower.

BIOGRAPHY:
Fine marine painting is much more than the illustration of ship and water. It is the evocation of salt and tar, wind and sail, the light, the movement of water ... the affinity of man and sea. As an experienced yachtsman, historian of the sea, as well as an acclaimed marine artist, Charles Lundgren captured this complex harmony in his paintings.Looking every bit the part of the ancient mariner, himself, Lundgren's love and respect for deep water was reflected in every painting. Combined with his consummate skill as an artist, this resulted in marine painting at its finest. Study at the New York School of Fine and Applied Art (Parsons), the Paris School of Fine and Applied Art, as well as schools in Germany and Italy, plus extensive travel throughout Europe and Africa enabled Lundgren to develop his talents and perfect his technique.One art critic praised him with these words: "He is, in my eyes, much more than a painter of the sea. He is a believer in it. A historian of the days when men reached new continents by sail and stars alone." Lundgren's painting skills were sought by individuals - he often painted "portraits" of the boats and ships owned by the rich and the famous - as well as museums and companies.Not suprisingly, his works were acquired for such collections of Huntington Hartford, J.P. Morgan, Mrs. Dwight D. Eisenhower, John Wayne, Pegeen Fitzgerald, Cornelius Walsh, George Jensen and Eric Sloane.
