clipper ship War HawkJim Tucker
Three different paintings of the "ship War Hawk by Gideon J. Denny 1880" have been found in publications. I am looking for evidence that one or more of them was actually titled by the author. The ship was active in the San Francisco area 1857 to 1883. How common was it for painters to title their paintings ? If a painting is framed would the title be covered ? I don't doubt that Denny painted the War Hawk, but I wonder if he painted her three times. JETucker 8-27-07.
