Quintana J. 'High Flyer'
The 'Highflyer' is a British sailing ship, built in 1861 as a Blackwall Frigate, that in 1880 became the first ship to deliver Portuguese immigrants from the Azores Islands to Hawaii. It was preceded by two ships that brought immigrants from the Madeira Islands, making it the third ship to participate in the Portuguese immigration to Hawaii.
This is a water colour painting on paper by J. Quintana (signed) of Highflyer in full sail flying the Red Ensign flag. It is a very atmospheric and highly detailed picture, good sensitive brush work. Some paint missing from top middle and left-hand sections of the painting. (see photographs)
