Ellen Siegmund

J. Arnold ship paintings
J. Arnold was a relative. He lived from 8/20/1882 - 3/3/1969. He was born in England. He worked on sailing vessels, roaming the world from age 12 until age until age 25. He then immigrated to the U.S. in 1914. He then began painting as he felt he could depict in watercolor and oil the sea and ships he knew so well. I have 15 of these paintings and am looking for a gallery to display them.

J. Arnold
I love the nautical paintings of J. Arnold. I own one titled "Off Cape May". I wish I could find more info on the artist. I seems that all his paintings were done in the 1950s, somewhere in the mid Atlantic area. What does the J. stand for. John or Jay. Seems that on one really knows. Help


Ariel by J Arnold
I was extraordinarily lucky to stumble on a John Popeye Arnold at a Goodwill in Sarasota, FL. It is large, 36" x 24" in a drift wood-y type frame. It is called Ariel. I managed to snag it for $39.99!! They had just put it out that morning. Because I live in Florida, I have a nautical theme in my house (who doesn't??)and the Arnold is my favorite by far. I have read these posts on this site and am thrilled no one else has written in about an Arnold called Ariel. Having said that, if any nautical buffs know about a ship called Ariel I would love to hear from you!


"Out to Sea"
I have a painting hanging in my living room above the sofa that belonged to my husbands grandfather who was a merchant seamen. His wife bought if for him at the Art Shop, Oktavec's on Monument Street in Baltimore. The painting is "Out to Sea" and it is signed by J Arnold.


I have a landscape painting of a florida landscape with palm trees, water, and ibis, birds,,,it is signed simple "arnold" could Jay Arnold be the artist?


J Arnold
I have about 6 arnolds, in the family there are many, he was a friend of my grandfathers. My uncle has an Arnold that was hung in the Governor of Marylands office for many years. I know there is a strong baltimore connection.

J Arnold "Macquarie"
I have an oil painting by J Arnold "Macquarie". It is a 2'(H) by 3'(W) oil painting, L to R a 3 or 4 masted ship with a ghost ship on the horizon, purchased in NYC around 1943. It is signed By J Arnold and looks more like the work of Jay Arnold than that of John Arnold, both who are known for marine sailing ships. Does anyone know how John Arnold signed his paintings and would "Macquarie" be one of his paintings, or would it be Jay Arnold's? Thanks

The Flying Cloud
My father owned an Arnold of this name. He lived in Houston and died 14 years ago. The painting then might have traveled to Florida. He owned many many a most kept in his home, some at the Lakewood Yacht Club and a few on his yachts. Did you purchase this in the south.

This painter made a wonderful rendition of the sail ship the famous "Joseph Conrad" was he was in Baltimore.
