Michael Blaser's paintings are dedicated to the depiction of old American ports and ships, and the rivers that they punctuate. The artist is interested in celebrating what has vanished, and finds the river routes and ports to of American to be fitting images for a certain representation of America. About his practice in general, Blaser has declared that "these [works] are not to be mere illustrations. They are like a marker, a key to yesterday's America, and a reminder of a way of life that has vanished forever." He has rendered views of Cincinnati and the Ohio River on canvas multiple times, and this scene offered here is a quintessential example of Blaser's aesthetic.
