More About this Item


Description: ''The Wanderer in Southern Seas'', signed lower right: Duncan Gleason, titled on an artist's label affixed verso, oil on canvas, 20'' H x 24'' W, est: $10,000/15,000. Note: The Wanderer, a whaling bark, was built in the town of Mattapoisett, MA and launched on April 16, 1878. The ship measured 116' bow to stern, with a beam of over 27'. For over 20 years, The Wanderer sailed out of New Bedford on whaling trips, with her last voyage in the summer of 1924. On August 24, 1924, the ship was caught in a massive tropical storm that was so violent the vessel's anchor chain was severed.
