Antonio Jacobsen was a prolific maritime painter well known for his depictions of American vessels. As a child, Jacobsen learned music from his father. However, his true love was the sea. Jacobsen began painting the doors of safes with elaborate harbor scenes. These works landed him a commission for painting the vessels of the Old Dominion Steamship Company, which launched his career. The upcoming Rafael Osona Auctions event presents America’s Cup Trials, 1871, Yacht Dauntless by Jacobsen. The available oil painting features the artist’s signature vessel profile.
Another highlight is an oil painting titled Sailor’s Surprise by Ralph Eugene Cahoon Jr. The early 19th-century painting depicts a sailor and mermaid in Canton, China. Whimsical scenes of mermaids with sailors are among Cahoon’s most famous works. A Wagonmaster Jeep Grand Wagoneer will be on offer as well. This 1989 gray Wagoneer has a burgundy interior, power windows, and modern radio. The auction also offers Stephen Swift Windsor dining chairs, a Reed & Barton flatware service, and Steuben glassware.
