Schooner in a Storm
Oil on canvas
This unsigned painting portrays a schooner, or yacht, in a storm. It's possibly one of a pair of paintings, the other showing what may be the same vessel in Naples Bay.
The Steamship Historical Society of America is dedicated to the history and preservation of powered vessels; however, it is the first to acknowledge that sailing vessels are the ancestors of powered vessels and therefore, sailing vessels are important to the history of the powered vessel. For this reason it is appropriate for paintings of sailing ships to be depicted in this Museum.
