Painting

Cutty Sark
1879-1967, American

This highly detailed painting of the clipper ship "Cutty Sark" is by noted American marine artist Frank Vining Smith (1879-1967). An oil on canvas created around 1930, it measures 30 x 40 inches and is signed by the artist in the lower right corner. This ship was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, holding the record time from Australia to Britain for a period of ten years. The name refers to the witch "Nannie Dee" in Robert Burns 1791 poem "Tam o'Shanter" and she is represented as the ships figurehead in a white "cutty sark" or short nightgown.

Print

Washington Bridge Tower
1872- c.1950, American

This lithograph by Dexter Dawes measures 11 5/8 x 15 1/4 inches, one in a series of lithographs of the construction of the George Washington Bridge that Dawes created between 1927 and the bridges' completion in 1931. This suspension bridge would eventually connect Ft. Lee, NJ to Manhattan across the Hudson River. Swiss born engineer Othmar Amman made this gigantic structure look "light and airy" with its miles of intertwined steel cable. Considered by some to be the noblest of bridges it became a symbol of the art and craft of the civil engineering profession.
