The artist John Stobart
We are at the Norman J. Hughes American Paintings Gallery feel undoubtedly Mr. Stobart is the number one marine artist in all of the world!
Absolutely the finest!
I am John Stobart's eldest daughter Diana Wild. My Dad is alive and kicking at 78 and still working feverishly to accomplish all that he has dreamed to do. He recently received an honorary Doctorate of Letters from the University of Derby which he attended when it was the Derby College of Art. It was wonderful to see him honored for all the hardwork he has done so far in his life. I have pointed out the Ask Art website to his business manager at Maritime Heritage Prints, the business that my Dad started to ensure that his work was available to everyone and not only locked away in some museum vault where regular people might never see it.
Rare John Stobart Prints
I have two John Stobart prints that I'm trying to find the value on. One is entitled "City of Baton Rouge" and the other "Chattanooga" both are signed and numbered, and the "City of Baton Rouge" has a special signature packet attached to the back of it.

I have a painting signed John Stobart of Ripon Cathedral - does anyone know if he painted in Ripon, Yorkshire, before he moved to Canada/USA?
I have recently seen a print of the Empress of Canada, a ship(passenger) done for Canadian Pacfic and signed Stobart and I was wondering if this was done by the same John Stobart- does anyone know if he did commission work while in Canada.
