        Maritime Engravings/Etchings. Both have printed on lower left corner Painted by S. Walters and engraved by H. Pepprill. They come from the New York Graphic Society, The Gallery Collection. The first etching is titled "Outward Bound" and on the back is indicated FG# 3071. The second etching is titled "Homeward Bound" and on the back is indicated FG# 3070. Born at sea, the son of Miles Walters, a recognized marine artist, shipwright and seaman, Samuel Walters became one of the brightest and most enduring lights of the Liverpool School of marine art. Trained at the Liverpool Academy, Walters excelled in all facets of marine painting, but was most accomplished in ship portraiture. Briefly setting up a studio in London with fellow marine artist William Huggins, he decided after two years to return to Liverpool to further his career. His timing was perfect as Liverpool soon became the magnet for the international shipping firms of the 19th Century and a major port of call for the great ships of the world. Although he exhibited very accomplished harbor views and seascapes, it was in his portraits of the great ships that plied the world's seas that he would find fame and fortune. His finesse earned Walters a reputation as "the aristocrat of 19th Century British marine painters". Size: 21 x 23 in. Sight Size: 12 1/2 x 14 in.

        Est: £4,000 - £6,000

        Samuel Walters, British 1811-1882- The Ship 'Guiding Star'; oil on canvas, signed and dated 'S. WALTERS. 1853' (lower left), 81.8 x 122 cm. Provenance: With Richard Green, London [no.AG393].; An important Private Collection, UK. Note: Walters was one of the most celebrated marine artists of the 19th-century Liverpool School. Like many of his paintings, the present work foregrounds an individual ship against an empty expanse of sea and sky, with the choppy seas here creating a sense of dynamism which echoes the globalisation brought by developments in the ship-building industry. The clipper ship �Guiding Star� was built in 1853, was initially owned by Miller & Thompson's Golden Line, and completed her first round trip to Melbourne in 1854. On 9th January 1855, she departed Liverpool to Australia with 62 crew and officers and 481 passengers on board, mostly emigrants. She was last seen on 15th February 1855 in the Southern Ocean by the American Ship �Mercury�, and was soon after tragically shipwrecked, presumably having been embayed in a huge icefield.

        Samuel Walters - British, 1811-1882 Fairfield Oil on canvas 28" x 42" Signed, dated 1860 The USS Fairfield was an 18-gun sloop-of-war in the United States Navy. Fairfield was launched June 28, 1828, with Commander Foxhall A. Parker Sr. in command. Reaching Port Mahon in the Balearic Islands in September 1828, Fairfield cruised the Mediterranean Sea until returning to Hampton Roads in May 1831. Her second cruise was in the West Indies as flagship for Commodore Jesse Elliott. During much of this time, she patrolled off the coast of Mexico to protect Americans and their property during political disturbances. On May 30, 1833, Fairfield sailed from New York for duty in the Pacific Squadron, arriving in Valparaiso, Chile, in September. During this cruise she supervised the disarmament and dismantling of a group of ships belonging to an Ecuadorian revolutionary force after American mediation had ended a civil war. Fairfield returned to Norfolk, Virginia, in December 1835. In April 1837, she departed for the Brazil Station; her commanding officer Commodore Isaac Mayo was senior officer of the squadron. She served as a protector for American commerce and interests, guarding against a blockade of Argentina set by French warships. Returning to New York in April 1840, Fairfield was recommissioned in May 1841. She sailed for the Mediterranean, carrying Commodore Charles W. Morgan, who was to take command of the squadron based on Port Mahon, and served as his flagship while he conducted negotiations with the Emperor of Morocco to obtain redress for the arrest and detention of the United States Consul at Tangier. The USS Fairfield returned to Hampton Roads from this, her last cruise, on January 17, 1845, and was decommissioned at Norfolk. Later that year she served briefly as a receiving ship housing newly recruited sailors until they could be reassigned. In 1852 she was broken up.

Marine Arts Gallery, Salem, Massachusetts. The Ritz Carlton Collection. Christie's East, New York, Maritime Sale, February 1997. Acquired from the above at that sale. The Adelaide is depicted entering Liverpool, off the Skerries, Anglesey, with the South Stack Lighthouse just visible on the right and the Skerries Lighthouse ahead of the bowsprit. At 1,831 tons and 216 feet long, Adelaide was the 16th largest ship built in the United States during the 1850s. By 1865 she had been sold to Henry Fernie of Liverpool, whose house flag is shown at the mainmast. She is shown with divided topsails, although this modification occurred after her early voyages, and single top gallants with furled Royals. When launched she also carried skysails. Adelaide had a successful and uneventful 20-year career before being stranded in December, 1875 and condemned at Cape Town. From the Kelton Collection of Marine Art & Artifacts.

        SAMUEL WALTERS United Kingdom, 1811-1882 Liverpool pilot boat #2 Kitty in a rough sea. Signed and dated lower right "S. Walters 1837". Provenance: Vallejo Gallery, Newport Beach, California. Purchased from the above, August 1996. Literature: See Samuel Walters - Marine Artist by Samuel Davidson (Jones-Sands Publishing, Wirral, U.K., 1992), p. 163 for an illustration of another painting of the pilot boat Kitty and a discussion of this work. In this early painting by Samuel Walters, the Liverpool pilot cutter off the headland of Great Orme makes her way to rendezvous with an inbound ship in busy restricted waters on a windy day. The outward-bound cross-channel paddle steamer in the right background is likely the Ariel , an Admiralty P.O. steam packet. This pilot boat was the third to be so named, and she was in service as a pilot boat until 1846, after which she was still afloat in Bereheven, County Cork, Ireland, in 1886.

        SAMUEL WALTERS United Kingdom, 1811-1882 The Liverpool paddlewheel steam tug United States. Signed and dated lower left "S. Walters 1858". Provenance: Vallejo Gallery, Newport Beach, California. Purchased from the above, June 1998. The iron-hulled paddle tug United States , built at Newcastle in 1857, was owned by the United Steam Tug Co. of Liverpool. Her dual-stack steam engines had an output of 130 horsepower. Even though the last British paddlewheel vessel, Cunard Scotia , was built in 1865, the tug United States was still in active service in 1883. This is one of five tugs that enabled the United Steam Tug Company Ltd. to maintain service in Liverpool Bay in all but the most extreme conditions. In the condition portrayed, the master is taking no chances. A full head of steam is available in both boilers, indicated by smoke from each funnel and a wisp of steam escaping from their adjacent steam pipes. According to Samuel Davidson, the handling of the sea and stormy sky is unmistakably that of Samuel Walters at his most mature. This painting is likely a commission from the vessel's captain. From the Kelton Collection of Marine Art & Artifacts. Oil on canvas, 28" x 42". Framed 34.5" x 48.5".

Provenance: Enoch Train, commissioned by him from Samuel Walters. Adeline Train, Enoch's daughter, who married Seth Whitney, and then to her son. Theodore Train Whitney, Sr., Milton, Massachusetts, and then to his son. Theodore Train Whitney, Jr., Milton, Massachusetts, and then to his sons. Theodore Train Whitney III, Barnstable, Massachusetts and George Whitney, Colorado. Hyland Granby Antiques, Hyannisport, Massachusetts. Acquired from the above, February 1998. Literature: Samuel Walters - Marine Artist by A.S. Davidson (Jones-Sands Publishing, Coventry, U.K., 1992), p. 207, discusses Miles Walters, Jr., framer. Flying The Colors by Alan Granby and Janice Hyland (Mystic Seaport, Mystic, Ct., 2009), p. 315, plate V.10. The original period frame bears the label of "W.M. Walters, Carver and Guilder, No. 3 Berry Street, Liverpool". This is the label of Samuel Walters' brother, William Miles Walters, and is significant because William went "up market" in 1851, the date of this painting, moving to 97 Bold Street in what is still a fashionable shopping district. This would be one of the last of the old labels William used before relocating to his new address. The painting detail shows the New Brighton Steam ferry boat at the Brighton Pier on the extreme left. Just to the right of this is a sailing ship being side-towed into the harbor by a local tug. Perch Rock (sometimes called Black Rock) Fort and Lighthouse appear just under the Daniel Webster 's bowsprit, with the fort's connecting causeway clearly defined. On the Daniel Webster 's foremast is a post-1840 Marryat's Code four-flag hoist, identifying the ship by her numerical designation, 7-1-8-3, displayed beneath the second distinguishing pennant. At the main truck is the white diamond house flag of the vessel's owners, Enoch Train and Company. The American flag flies from her gaff. There are a large number of carefully detailed people on the ship's deck, and also two figures working aloft, one on the fore topsail yard and one on the mizzen topsail yard. The ship's figurehead represents Daniel Webster standing above a gilded platform followed by articulated trailboards. From the Kelton Collection of Marine Art & Artifacts. Oil on canvas, relined, 32" x 48". Framed 43.5" x 59.5".

        MILES WALTERS AND SAMUEL WALTERS United Kingdom, 1773-1849 and 1811-1882 American packet Sheffield approaching Liverpool. Signed and dated lower right "Walters & Son 1831". Provenance: Estate of W. Scott Keith, Jr., Deerfield, Massachusetts, descendant of the original owners. Skinner Inc., Boston, March 23, 1997. Acquired from the above at that sale. This view depicts the Red Star Line packet Sheffield in two positions inbound to Liverpool off the South Stack Lighthouse, below the Holyhead and the signal station at Angsley. Two small channel cutters are shown beneath Sheffield 's bowsprit. Indicative of the collaborations between Miles and Samuel Walters in the 1830s, the sea is rough and choppy, painted in a vigorous style with strong light effects. When Sheffield was launched from the yard of Smith and Dimon in New York in 1831, she was considered the fastest of the transatlantic packet ships. She sailed for the Red Star Line on the Liverpool run for 13 years, and she was then sold and converted to a whaler and sailed out of Cold Spring Harbor, New York until 1860.
