Superb and extremely early oversized original Sutcliffe painting

A fantastic original painting by Sutcliffe, entitled ‘Shipwreck,’ done in poster paint on paper, 14.75 x 11. The painting depicts a single man in a life boat looking back over his shoulders as a freighter is pushed against the rocks by white-capped waves. Signed on the reverse in blue ink, “Stuart Sutcliffe (Ship Wreck (rough) Sept. 1954.” In fine condition, with some small areas of surface loss to borders, as well as a few tack holes which could easily be matted out. Sutcliffe rarely signed his works, and while smaller versions of his sketches and rough studies are available from time to time, oversized signed works such as the one offered here are quite rare. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Sutcliffe’s estate. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
