oil portrait - 19th Century Maine Ship Builder / Guy C. Goss) by Helen M. Hinds

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Offered here as found and as photographed is this 16 X 20 inch portrait signed by listed 19th century Massachusetts artist Helen M. Hinds. (see: Who Was Who in American Art, 1564-1975 by Peter H. Falk & Audrey M. Lewis) A penciled name on the canvas back reads Guy C. Goss. Our quick google search for another likeness took us to the Maine Historical Society, MaineMemory.net site and their photo portrait of Goss. A search for additional images for comparison produced several photographs of a name sake three misted ship but no additional views of Goss himself who has a different beard configuration in the Historical Society image than in the oil portrait. (We ask buyers to do their research, look and compare for their own satisfaction.)
Guy C. Goss was of the shipbuilder firm of Goss & Sawyer later Goss, Sawyer & Packard said to be one of the most prolific shipyards of Bath, Maine. (see: A Maritime History of Bath, Maine and the Kennebec River Region, by William A. Baker) Born in 1822 Guy Carlton Goss was first a school teacher then, in the 1860 U. S. Census he is listed as a Bath, Maine mariner & shipmaster, in 1870 and 1880 as ashipbuilder. He died in 1890 having been a principal of one of the most successful 19th century American ship-building companies in the world.
As to condition, there is a small ˝ inch puncture tear in the canvas just above the shoulder seam of the subject’s shirt. The oil on canvas portrait is otherwise solid with some stretcher wear but with pleasing color and an eye appealing look. We do take special care in presentation of our photographs and apologize for our host’s insistence of the distracting watermarking of enlargement. Please inspect our illustrations carefully however and if you have any questions please let us know.
