SSHSA'S VIRTUAL MUSEUM

Schooner in a Storm
Artist unknown
Oil on canvas


This schooner is shown in a storm fighting to stay afloat.  It is unsigned, but looks like an Italian port painting or Pierhead painting.


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.
