In this picture, from right to left: Mr. Amândio, the former Chairman of Centro Náutico Moitense; the Captain of Lisbon Port; Sailor Girl, with a flag of this blog ("Yes, my blog has a flag! What about yours?!" LoooooL); the former C.E.O. and former President of Associação Naval Sarilhense; and the Pretendant to the Portuguese Crown (a very special Friend of the People who sail in the Tagus River) on a ceremony on 1st December 2006.
This was a very special day to all Sailors of the Tagus Fleet. After a long day with ceremonies throughout the country, His Royal Highness Duarte Pio de Bragança still managed to travel to Moita, where this ceremony took place, and honour everybody with his presence, having been in charge to give the prizes to sailors who participated on the Royal Race of the Tagus.
And now, I take the opportunity to post a few amazing pictures of some of my favourite maritime paintings!! I am affraid to post them at another page, as I guess that at City Daily Photoblog we should make only one reference per day to our city... And, when posting several articles, this blog keeps appearing several times with different pictures, some of them nothing having to do with Lisbon. If you know how to manage this problem, please advise me!...
Ship Portrait of the Danish Brig "Dorothea af Ebeltoft, Captn. A. Carlsen" 1865, the vessel is showing off Christiansoe (near Bornholm), signed inscribed with title along the bottom and dated, Oil on canvas, 45 x 65 cm, possession of a Private Collector in Northern Germany. In several of his pictures Reimers used light colors and depicted the vessel in a sunshine situation. Click on the image to see a larger illustration. Photo Copyright is with the Fine Art Emporium.

Ship Portrait of the German Steamer "Anton von Kiel - Capt. E. Aereboe" at sea off Hong Kong 1890 - the steamer is shown in the Chinese Sea with two junks in the background - Oil on canvas on original stretcher, 53 by 77 cm, with frame 65 x 88 cm - signed "Heinrich Reimers", dated 1890 and inscribed with title as shown above - cleaned, smaller areas with retouch only, in good condition, in the original frame - Private Collection Portugal. Reimers was a Captain and Pilot himself and worked in Kiel as a ship portrait artist. The steamer "Anton" was owned by the shipping company "Sartori & Berger" in Kiel and was obviously used for coastal trade in Far East. This is a light color painting with a romantic touch in the sky and an interesting background. It represents a typical and well done ship portrait by this known artist.

Ship Portrait of a Royal Yacht Club Sailing Yawl at sea ca. 1895 - the large sailing yacht is shown under full sail at moderate sea - Oil on board, 55 by 82 cm - signed lower left "T.G. Purvis" and inscribed "Cardiff". Purvis was a busy ship portrait artist, working in Cardiff, London and Bristol. He portrayed some of the largest sailing vessels which ever crossed the Oceans. Portraits of Yachts by him - such as this one - are rare. Most of his paintings were executed between 1890 and the Great War (1914). This painting shows a realistic sea and a detailed handling of the large Yacht, which flies the burgee of a Royal Yacht Club (British or Irish) on the main mast.

Já tenho publicado mais do que uma foto por dia no Daily City Photoblog - é para compensar os outros blogues que não publicam todos os dias!

Mas quando não se justifica que as imagens apareçam nesse portal, eu altero a hora de publicação (atrasando-a) dos novos posts, por forma a que fique sempre em cima a foto para o DCP.
