This painting, showing a view of Manhattan from Govenor's Island on a partly cloudy day, depicts a dark red-hulled freighter being led into port by a red tugboat. The white decked ship, complete with black and white-banded smoke stacks is shown pulling into the harbor on the starboard side. Sailing along the dull blue/brown water, reflecting the bleak and dark sky, are at least two more ships-one red and one black-located to the right of the main freighter. Smoke rising from the clutter of buildings along the shore can be seen in the background; also, a myriad of white dots seem to speckle the canvas. Signed lower left: Carlton T. Chapman A.N.A/ 1904
Gift of Mrs. Carlton T. Chapman
