On the lookout for Marine Art

The editor’s favourites:  marine oil paintings! (UK Royal Society of Marine Artists)

East Yorkshire’s Marine Artists

“Catch me if you can” Contemporary Artist Adrian C. Rigby (sold for $25,000)

Had the editor the resources, he would cover his walls with original, antique, contemporary, 20th Century, classical and naive marine oil paintings. They are however quite valuable now and over the last few decades at least  highly collectible both Nationally and internationally!

Note: it’s a “Bears Market” for art collectors currently so now’s your chance to snap up some potential longer-term investments!

The editor settles for stamps and prints instead – which for all intents and purposes fulfill his interest as an art ethusiast rather than a collector for investment reasons

First Day Editions Stamp Collection

The Editor also wanted to recover his lost “first editions” stamp collection he started with his mother’s assistance from the age of about 8, as collected over his teenage years from the Hull Stamp Shop, then located on the top of Princess Avenue near the junction with Spring Bank. A sample above which he bought today which he is thinking of mounting in a picture frame.

Many of the stamps are worth little more than they were bought for some 50 years on taking inflation into account, but stamp collections are considered as a very long term investment and the market may turn eventually.. but look out for the rare Victoria “Penny Black”!

There are a number of societies catering for local art and collectors in the region including NADFAS, Hull & East Riding Antiques & Fine Arts Society – and the Myton Gallery in Hiull’s Silver Street Arcade is difietely worth a visit for collectors of marine art and the history of marine art in the region!
