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 was commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen.
In 1884, he 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.
