Default Another J. Harvey ship battle

My mother purchased a painting by the artist depicting two ships fighting (obviously the main thing he painted) and it only cost around $1300. She talked the artist down to $750 or such and this was only 20 years ago at a Doncaster Art Show held in the Doncaster City Council offices in Victoria, Australia.

And he was not an old man at the time.

IHTH.
Cheers,
Bruce

We have a J harvey white sig. as described by you. bought at boot fair £5, 2 ships fighting with small one in distance.

Joining this thread it would appear there are many J Harvey's on the market.
Reading the thread it would appear many originate from China but seeing others they appear to have different aspects of ships in Battle. Mine shows two ships in battle with a light sky above . has any one else have the same?
Whatever I was pleased with my purchase and it looks great on my wall.
I recently went on holiday to Fosrster in NSW Australia and fell in love with an oil painting by J. Harvey which turns out to be the one you have posted. I would really really love to purchase this painting. Do you know where I can buy one. Yve

Default the battleship paintings

I have one and it says J Harney and it seem that each one of the paintings r a little different and my guess is that they are all copies since i have one and had it for about 8 years and got it at my local Wal Mart in the Florida and i paid $50 and got a better frame for it at my local art gallery. So most of the paintings r reproductions but very good oil paintings. I would say if you have one for over 30 or more years you might have a real one or a reproduction as well since no real evidence on the artist.

Cool j. harvey painting

i have two paintings by j. harvey, and they are both different, depicting a pass from the direct canon fire of two ships, awesome scene, if you bought it cheap, you are the winner, however it should not be resold for less than a few thousand, at minimum hudreds, the battelship scenes appear to be like sections of the battleships approaching each other and passing it each other after bombardments, a lively scene for anyone's living room, a valuable find.

Add mine the list. A real mystery and the best I can do is make a best guess based on the information on the net. I wanted to research the painting as I want to sell it soon. I don’t think J Harvey is an artist but is a “factory name” signed by the individual artist commissioned or employed by the factory. We bought ours from the person who claimed to be the artist (and Australian male about 30 years old) in 1999 for £60. He said he had just finished it the previous day. It looks as though these were turned out on mass between 1990 and 1999 and were painted in China and Mexico. The point for me is that it is an original oil painting and I it bought because I liked it and we have had our money’s worth of pleasure from it. I do feel sorry for those who paid over a $750 for theirs though.

Smile Add one more to the list!

I had found the painting with the two ships battling signed by J. Harvey in red yesterday, while I was cleaning an old house in Greece. I took it home and now it is on my living room. I wonder who is the artist, it's very interesting since his paintings seem to be all over the world...

Default I have a 36" x 48" Version purchased in UK

Around 2003 i worked for Courts Furniture a large furniture store chain in the uk, Courts had a department call finishing touches which sold pictures, candles, cousins ect. When i left Courts i Purchased (With My Staff Discount) 2 x 36" x 48" guilt framed Pictures one called "Battleships" by J Harvey and another "not Sure what it was called" signed by Max Savy. both are signed in red paint, I think courts retailed them at around £199 I'm pretty sure they are factory produced and i notice that when i look them up on the internet i have never found another picture which is exactly the same there is always a difference

Well, my parents have had these 2 paintings around the house since they were married. They told me a guy gave them the paintings as a wedding gift. The guy was one of the people who escaped from Hitler. We think the paintings could possibly be stolen and worth a lot. One is signed by J. Harvey, I've been doing research on it but I cant find anything about it. Its just a painting of a wave in the sea, the wave's hitting big rocks and seagulls are flying over it.

Smile J Harvey oil on canvas

#53
I have this same picture with white signature. Oil on canvas. Appears to be an original, 22x 23 in frame.Canvas in very good condition. Matting in one corner is dirty and I do not want to try and clean up as it may make it worse. I just purchased this oil at an estate sale in Florida, USA. Original owner told me they have it for over 40 years and paid over $900 US. They did not mention if they purchased it retail at a gallery or a private sale. Possible?? I am looking to sell this pievce of art. Know of anyone interested? Fran

Smile artist: J Harvey oil

#53. I own a VERY similar painting. Supposedly original oil on canvas. White signature by J.Harvey. I recently purchased this scene depicting two ships, 22 x 23, at an estate sale. Original owners told me they had it for over 40 years and paid over $900 (US). They did not say if they bought the picture at a gallery or via a private sale. My picture is in very good condiition. The matting has a dirt mark in one corner and the frame has a few small "dinks", but overall good condition. I am looking to sell this piece at a extrtemely reasonable price. Know of anyone who would be interested? F

Exclamation J Harvey

I Have A Painting By This Artist. It Has Been In The Family For A Long Time, But Is Does Not Look Like Any One Of The Ones You Guys Have. I'm Not Sure But The Brush Strokes Seems To Be A Bit Different And My Signature Is In A Very Dark Red Almost Brown Red Not The Same Bright Red As The Rest Of You. It is also about two ships in battle passing each other and both is on fire with lost of canon ball splashes around and its night. I Would Realy Love To Know More About This Painting.

Default J HARVEY LANDSCAPES Paintings

I have noticed a lot of Ship Paintings Mentioned here . I have 2 x Signed J Harvey Paintings that are N0.1 " Rural Scene Durham " and No.2 : " Scene in Surrey " . I have been after info on these and thanks to J Harvey JR and the clever people on this site i am a bit more informed . I am now wondering if these where painted by the earlier John Robone Harvey ? They are in Ornate Gold Frames and measure approx 600mm x 320mm . They are both signed " J HARVEY " in Red . I mention this because he seems to have been the Land Scape Painter in the Family ? . Any info than can further enlighten me would be gratefully appreciated
