    Maritime Painting: Yacht Portrait of the British Steam Yacht The Alice in Stormy Seas by [Antonio] De Simone. Italian. Gouache on paper. The painting is 24" x 16" (sight size) and attractively framed in maple veneer frame (31 x 22.5"overall).

    The painting shows the British Steam Yacht The Alice under sail in stormy seas. The British Blue Ensign is at the end of boom and the United States national flag on the topsail, signifying The Alice was in United States territorial waters. The painting is signed "De Simone" in the lower-right corner. The De Simone family (fl. 1865-1910) was well known and highly respected as Italian ship portrait artists.

    In July 1893, The Alice won the Knickerbocker Yacht Club "Cabin Sloop Race" at the club's regatta in New York's Flushing Bay.
