Known for marine paintings from subjects he observed in the waters off New York, James Buttersworth lived long enough to depict the early steamship era.  His career spanning sixty years was dedicated to portraits of all types of ships at sea such as racing clipper ships, steamers, and yachts.  Nearly 600 of his paintings have been found, and his contribution in preserving this colorful chapter in American history is profound.

His special skill was portraying the majesty, (showing 500 of 7090 characters).
