Big Class, 1930
|Title||Big Class, 1930|
|Paper Size (W x H)||32 x 24 ins|
This painting depicts some stunning Big Class yachts. These yachts were reserved for a wealthy elite of yachtsmen and used to compete with the best sailing talents.
By 1932, the era of the 'Big Class' yachts was drawing to a close as the American 'J' Class rule was gradually introduced. Led by Astra, the leading yachts of the time reduced their canvas sizes to bring themselves also into line with the new American rules. This golden age of yacht racing is brought to life by Dews’ consummate ability to create dramatic compositions with an almost obsessive eye for detail.
Each print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist. The certificate is numbered to match the print.
