This item is a charming oil on board painting of an outrigger boat and sailors on a beach. It is signed by the artist Alfred Coffey (1869-1950) a painter and etcher, born in Limerick, Ireland. Resident of Sydney, NSW, in May 1923 he probably became the first Australian artist to visit and paint in the Dutch East Indies (according to Garside), travelling to Borneo, Java, Bali and the Celebes where he was interested in the local cultures.
The painting is in good condition but has very faint crackling to the paint surface in places which is only really noticeable close to and there is a dark line (which would hopefully come away if cleaned gently) next to the mast. The frame holds the painting securely and measures approx. 17.5" x 14"
