Giclee print on canvas reproduced after the original oil painting, circa 1820
Measures 15 X 22.5 inches with 1 inch wood stretcher, unframed
This high quality giclee print is reproduced from the original folk painting depicting the defeat of the British squadron by Commodore Perry, near Put-in-Bay, Ohio, September 10, 1813. This exceptional folk painting recreation depicts the British flotilla and the American vessels consisting of two ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop engaged in battle. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry is centered in the front of the painting leaving the LAWRENCE in a rowing skiff to board the Brig NIAGARA. Perry’s battle flag flies bravely above the remains of the U.S.S. Lawrence main mast emblazoned with the phrase: “Don’t Give Up the Ship.” The flag was transferred to her sister ship, the eventual Flagship, the Brig Niagara. Perry’s words to William Henry Harrison, “We have met the enemy and they are ours,” have become forever immortalized.
