Details

Andrew Peters, who has been a professional ship-carver for over two decades, presents a comparative study of European sailing ships’ decorative work – their figureheads, topside ornamentation and stern gallery design. He identifies how national variations of the Baroque style developed in France, Britain, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden; and ends with a personal account of the application of his research in the meticulous reconstruction of a Swedish vessel from 1738.
