revue navale entente cordiale

 William Minshall Birchall   1884-1941.: was an American watercolorist  who chose to emigrate to England 
Painting chiefly in watercolors, Birchall created many fine portraits of deep water sailing vessels and was noted as well for his pictures of shipping in and around the Thames estuary and the English channel. He was known to have traveled as far south as Gibraltar seeking authentic background for his paintings.
Birchall's images were also reproduced in numerous naval textbooks of the period including volumes of "The King's Ships" and "Britannia's Bulwarks". Today paintings by William Minshall Birchall are well represented in museum collections as well as important private collections world-wide.
