The Fright of the Seagulls - Co. Donegal, watercolor, signed l/l inscribed l/r,13.75" X 13.75" x 6.75" plus frame.
Excellent condition; in portfolio for over twenty-five years before being framed in the mid 1990s. This painting is from my personal collection and hangs in a prominent position in our home.

James Macmaster was a Glasgow landscape and coastal painter; he specialized in fishing scenes with boats in harbour, fishing villages and scenes of unloading the catch. He worked in both oil and watercolour, the latter being painted in a 'wet' Glasgow manner. His work is similar to that of Andrew Black and James McNiven. -- From The Dictionary of Scottish Painters.

All art is priced without respect to the frame (when applicable). We don't judge a book by its cover, so why should we judge a painting or print by its frame? A cropped image is included for every listing, allowing the prospective buyer to imagine their own frame. Re-framing can be costly, but if a quality piece of art can be purchased for a reasonable price, the cost of a new frame could enhance both the the aesthetic and financial value of a painting. Most art dealers price paintings without consideration for the frame (though there are exceptions - some antique frames are collectors items in their own right).

Shipping charges to the 48 Contiguous States are included in the price; Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada - add $30.00; Europe - add $50.00; please request a custom quotation for other destinations. Sales are restricted to those countries approved by the United States Postal Service and limited by postal regulations restricting parcel size and weight. NOTE: Customs duty and/or taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.
