Gun Deck Cutaways -A Decorative and Definitive Art Form

Posted: April 30, 2014 11:41 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

It is not surprising that this subject matter has not been recognized in the arts. However, it is a subject that warrants appreciation for its unique form of symmetry and balance when being viewed as a concept. Fine art is anything that is beyond the ordinary; a work which holds unprecedented merit at its finest level -regardless of medium. Money, nor an expert's opinion, cannot control it. What's factual is fine art is defined as "a form"..."a sculpture"...and/or "decorative piece". I can be further said by notables as "a knowledge made efficient by skill" (Genung) or "the expression o...

BEETLE Whaleboat Model -A Collector's Choice

Posted: March 24, 2014 15:10 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

When travelling in and around New England, it would not be surprising to discover a small, yet interesting multi-oared boat model displayed somewhere in a home, office, or library setting. This small double-ended type vessel would also be found in likely places such as antique shops, online galleries, and at notable maritime galleries -serving as a decorative art accent, or part of a collection. And, of course, these are very much part of the museum settings around the world for its simplistic yet esthetic design. The whaleboat has been the subject of countless stories and maritime...

We have had the privilege to offer some fantastic Indy 500 and auto racing-related treasures over the years.

For many of us, racing has always been a big deal. For others, it’s been the collections and rich history of auto racing that served as the bait. We can unequivocally state that we all love auto racing and all of the interesting and amazing bits and pieces of memorabilia that go with it. ...

Whaling - The Advent of Art Collecting

Posted: June 01, 2012 07:10 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

Documents, motion pictures, lectures, and annual gatherings -all are mediums working together to bring back the era of whaling. With this year's celebration at Mystic Seaport, in Mystic Connecticut, with the restoration of whaleship CHARLES W. MORGAN, more art venues are honing in on whaling themes in high numbers. At homes on Cape Cod, shoreline communities in and around New England, and maritime communities -worldwide, the whale has been an integral part of our culture. In history and art, there is no comparison to the degree of interest this mammal has promoted. Each year there are co...

Damaged Van Ryper Models -The Great Investment / Rex Stewart

Posted: May 20, 2012 09:38 Last Updated: | Rex Stewart

Some years ago it was suggested that I build waterline models for profitable sales, similiar to the work of noted builder Charles Van Ryper. At that time I was not familiar with his work, nor did I know the history about his contemporary "Art Deco' style which emerged when he produced his Travel Series prior to the Second World War. Today, in the maritime arts, especially in the Collectible market of ship models, there seem to be a strong resurgence of collectors sprouting up in America and across the atlantic relative to the antique shipmodels of Charles Van Ryper. This is due, in part,...

It's evident on the collectible's circuit that miniature ship models have taken on a new perspective as an artform. In recent times it has been garnered the distinctive titleship as being a highend collectible under the auctioneer's hammer -and bidding participants who look upon these tiny gems, with awe and appreciation, anticipate ownership.
