Today we have a new P/P post, featuring two sailing prints. With summer just around the corner, we thought we would shift our focus to open waters and sunny skies. The older print is a chromolithograph by L. Prang & Co, a publication company based out of Boston, entitled Flying Defender. This print was based off a painting by American marine painter James G. Tyler. It is an open-ocean racing scene, complete with a group of spectators on steamboats in the background. Our contemporary print is by Grace Bently-Scheck , and depicts a more serene boating excursion.
