Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Anon. sale, Phillips, London, 13 March 1984, lot 88.
    With Royal Exchange Art Gallery, London.
    Acquired from the above by the present owner, 20 December 1984.

    It has not yet been possible to identify the specific race and those yachts depicted in this spirited work but further research should bear fruit. In the context of yachting, the term "Corinthian" essentially means 'amateur', in the best sense of the word, and is used throughout the yachting world in both the names of clubs as well as trophy races.

    The Lough Derg Yacht Club, based at Dromineer, in County Tipperary, Eire, is reputedly the third oldest yacht club in existence, having been established in 1835. The Club House is situated on the eastern shore of the largest lake on Ireland's beautiful River Shannon and the Lough, fully 39kms. long, provides a spectacular backdrop for competitive yachting.
