Two Men in a Ketch by Charles Henry Gifford (1839-1904)
Enlarge

Gifford often used the blue and green clothing for his fishermen as shown in this watercolor.

Simple watercolor with great color and detail. Depicts a peaceful sail hugging the shore with sailboats in the distance. 

Low tide sand and pebbles are typical of Gifford's shoreline scenes, and the attention to detail in the ketch in reflective waters is pleasing. Gifford often used the blue and green clothing for his fishermen as shown in this watercolor.

Frame is a simple gold with a French line mat. The signature and date are clearly visible in the lower right hand corner.
