Steamshipsby Sandy Hook
Relaxing on the deck of an ocean liner, one couple lazily watches another ship pass by. A soft and soothing travel image!The comfort and luxury of ocean travel is perfectly conveyed in this carefully arranged casual scene of one liner being observed from another by an elegant couple. The colors are soft and the horizon merges with the sea in the orange haze of sunset. Georges Taboureau, who took a New Jersey cape for his artistic pseudonym, was an old hand at maritime scenes, and his magic touch shows in every line.
