Rhode Island Privateer Yankee Pursuing San Jose Indiano in the Summer of 1814

16x12 inches, oil on linen SOLD

The prize brought $600,000 in Portland, ME, and was the richest catch of the war.  The two black cabin boys each received a share amounting to more than a ship's captain made in a year. Painted for the American Society of Marine Artists’ website for the bicentennial of the War of 1812.
