Wanderer
Date: 1885
Title: Wanderer
Creator: Posner Maritime
 
The SY (Steam Yacht) Wanderer is shown slowly steaming on a lake or river (perhaps the Hudson River), with five flags flying. On the bow is the Union Jack; the Pilgrim Yacht Club burgee on the foremast; the owner’s personal flag on the mainmast; the name flag from the gaff; and the American Yacht ensign at the stern (however, this flag is painted incorrectly). Wanderer is about 45 to 50 feet in length, judging from the height of the passengers. The painter has skillfully shown the reflection of the yacht in flat waters of the scene.
