Description

One of two. A small rectangular format print of marine subjects; labeled below the image in large letters, A STORM. In turn, under this in small letters is another inscription. The scene depicts a wind-swept sky, a stormy green sea tossing a large clipper ship with a union jack side to the left. On the shore to the right, is a fort in the middle and a lighthouse in the immediate foreground with three figures, a woman watching out at the sea, and two wind-blown men, one gesturing at the listing ship. Several other figurines watch from the lighthouse's balcony railing at its base. Blue hills rise in the distance. It is glazed and framed in a simple brown frame.
