Shadowbox presentation of the steam yacht designed by G.L. Watson & Co. and built by Ramage & Ferguson in 1908 for Joseph Pulitzer, who owned her from 1908-1912. Later owners of the 304’, steel-hulled yacht were James Ross and Lord Tredegar, before her use by the Royal Navy as first an auxiliary patrol vessel and then a hospital ship, during WWI. This artistic ship’s portrait is done in the traditional style of late 19th century marine shadowbox paintings. It shows the yacht from the port side, steaming toward Boston Harbor, c. 1910, and has a polychrome hand-painted fair weather sky & moderate sea, and hand-painted ship’s name banner and date. The model is authentically painted per research, and constructed in semi-relief from solid wood, with assemblies and miscellaneous deck fittings of metal or wood. Presented for wall mounting in a glazed frame with gold leaf molding.
