Limited edition lithograph.

As a painter of the sailing barge, Chancellor is almost uniquely placed; he was one of the last generation of men to be involved in sailing on our rivers and coasts as a means of transport and many of his works have been inspired by vessels or characters he remembers from this period. A good example is this small watercolour, 'Tubby Blake's Yacht'.

This painting shows a sailing barge in a tranquil river scene, skippered by an old ruffian, Tubby Blake, who would not wash. Such was his odor that no-one would sail with him as mate and Tubby performed incredible feats of seamanship handling his barge alone!

Edition of 850, numbered and with the official publisher's blind stamp.
