Details: COZZENS, Frederic S. (1846-1928). For the America's Cup. The Start. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph. Sheet size: 14 x 20 3/8 inches.
Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists. Like nearly every other great marine artist, he was thoroughly acquainted with every aspect of ship construction and the art of sailing. He is best known for his paintings of great American yachts of the latter half of the 19th century, which were commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen.
In 1884, Frederic Cozzens expanded his audience by making a series of lithographs of his paintings. The first and most brilliant series was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races from which this print comes.
For the America's Cup. The Start shows the beginning of the race between the Atalanta and the Mischief, which took place in November of 1881. The Atalanta represented the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club in Belleville, Ontario. The Mischief was the New York Yacht Club's choice and is shown here in the lead.
