Marine Artist Russ Kramer of Mystic, Connecticut, specializes in fine art recreations of famous yacht races such as the America’s Cup and scenes of Gilded Age yachting life. Combining historic, maritime and figurative themes, his paintings are often from a thrilling first-person viewpoint, or a compelling birds-eye view. He has painted all the early America’s Cup races from the first, the Yacht America’s 1851 defeat of an entire fleet of the finest English yachts through the J-boat yacht Ranger of 1937. Two 12-meter races, yacht Weatherly in 1962 and yacht Intrepid in 1970 are also depicted.
Russ has also painted several of the early and famous Bermuda Race yachts such as Tamerlane, Hutoka and Finisterre. All of Russ Kramer’s yacht paintings are available in limited edition prints on both paper and canvas, signed and numbered by the artist. Canvas prints are enhanced by the artist using a textured gel varnish which gives them the look and feel of an original painting. Russ has been featured in Yachting magazine, Sail magazine, Wooden Boat magazine and Classic Boat magazine. He also works on commissioned yacht portraits and family experiences on the water.
He is the current President of the American Society of Marine Artists, and is represented by the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport, Connecticut, the J. Russell Jinishian Gallery in Fairfield Connecticut, the Roger King Gallery in Newport, Rhode Island and the ICON Gallery in Alexandria Virginia.
