    So I received this painting through my grandparents after my grandma just recently passed and my grandpa told me that they got it at an auction that was held at a Hilton hotel in California in the late 80ís early 90ís (he couldnít remember when it was) and I love the painting! However, when I started to look more into it and who did it; I just keep in getting more and more confused and curious. It looks like a J.Harvey painting cause it if several ships at sea having a battle but the signature is the most confusing part of it all. After reading about other peopleís art work by the same artist it does sound like Harvey did sign is work differtently on each piece and in different colors but my signature is in a white/silver color and written as, J. Harvery. Any thoughts to this mystery? My first thought was maybe itís a knockoff but then why did the Hotel/Auction company not notice it and allow it through the system? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

              OK. I have one as well. Just like these only... different. I bought mine in 2004 in Scottsdale Arizona, where I was told it was painted by a "local artist" as well. Funny. He is a mystery. Have you tried turning the painting and viewing it with "fresh eyes"? It's transformations are amazing.

                I picked up one of these a few years ago as part of a lot in an auction in London. Am convinced it's mass produced from China. Only China has the manufacturing culture and global market for this kind of thing that would explain the sheer volume of pictures and the spread of locations they have been turning up in. Having said that, it is a nicely produced oil, or possibly acrylic, painting and it looks good on my wall. I agree with #88. It would be nice to know who the real artist is and for them to get recognition. Can't seem to upload a picture, sorry

                  I bought a painting by J. Harvey in 1982 depicting 2 galleons. Would like more info on the artist. I wondered if it was painting by an artist I was at school with in Edinburgh called John Harvey, which is why I bought it.

                            I am the grandson of the painter Herbert Johnson Harvey born 1884. He was a member of the Birmingham school and painted mainly portraits but could also turn his hand to repousee and engraving. If you are interested I have set up a website of my grand father's engravings- http://jharvey18.moonfruit.com/#
                            I am not aware that he painted sea battles/ seascapes. His father John Rabone Harvey was also a painter, and as far as I know, painted landscapes. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information

                            Hello,
                            There had been too many similar paintings around the world and all of these are made as printed reproductions in oil. In China they make oil reproductions, hand signed, of different popular motifs and also some famous artist. Baroque dead nature, landscapes etc.
                            They are in oil but not painted only printed. Not always easy to notice the difference because they print texture as well. I have some of these (baroque flowers) and they are quite nice as decoration, and have beautiful large gilded frames. I bought them just for those frames, because they are worth way more then all those paintings.
                            Sometimes after printing they apply oil paint by hand to cover some printed areas. Signature is also sometimes printed and sometimes written by hand. They use different names, always difficult to find anything about the painter. Some are printed on cardboard. Everything is OK if you are aware of it and you pay small price, but sometimes those paintings can be sold in galleries where you can pay way more believing that someone really painted it.
                            For example large painting of ship in gilded frame (50x70cm) costs around 50 euro here in Croatia. If you consider the cost of canvas, oil paint and a large gilded frame...it' s definitely worth it.
                            But there are also real artist that paint different motifs for small amounts just to survive and sell something to tourists.
                            We all know that only some artists manage to live from their work.

                              • I have a signed J. Harvey in red oil painting 8x10 small but it has such great color and detail of two ships battling. definitely an original on canvas. Bought it at an estate sale here in florida for only $2. but no matter the value I love it. seems like they would of checked it out before they sold it but who knows. some families dont have a clue and dont care just want to make a buck.
