This 12 in. X 18 in. work, while loosely based on a photograph I found, is a figment of my own imagination. It is obviously an effort to highlight those beautiful paddle tugs so prevalent in the early 1900 s. The liner in the background is the Mauretania. The intent was to produce an atmospheric pie
Photo from the collection of the Library of Congress.
Since they indicate: "No known restrictions on publication" I assume that the photo is now on public domain.
Can anyone provide more details on the ship?
