The painting SUSANNE & WESTWARD is a re-creation of a critical moment during a race sailed on the waters of the English Channel during the summer of 1910. These were two of the many beautiful schooners sailing on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Both were large yachts by any standard but Susanne (154 tons) designed by William Fife; was simply overwhelmed by Westward (338 tons). She was the giant creation of Nathaniel Herreshoff; a yacht revered then and still considered by many now; the greatest of all racing schooners.
