Description: 

Lovely Victory Popular puzzle (P.5) made by G.J. Hayter & Co., Bournemouth, England.  Plywood, interlocking.  Picture looks like a photo but is signed by the artist, John Stobart (born 1929), a British maritime artist known for his paintings of American harbor scenes during the Golden Age of Sail.  He emigrated to Canada in 1957, where his paintings sold well to the various shipping companies on the Saint Lawrence River. In 1965 he made his first visit to the United States, hoping to impress some New York art galleries, and was offered a show at the Kennedy Galleries. The Wunderlich family, who owned the gallery, encouraged him to further develop his ideas for painting historic maritime scenes.  With his original paintings becoming increasingly popular with private collectors, Stobart also began to publish prints of his work. In 1989 he established the Stobart Foundation, to encourage traditional artists through scholarships.
