The Coast & the Sea: Marine and Maritime Art in America

The New-York Historical Society holds an important collection of marine paintings and maritime artifacts; a reflection of the fact that the early history and culture of the United States are closely bound to the Atlantic and the eastern seaboard of North America. More than fifty paintings ranging in date from 1750 to 1904 and a medley of maritime artifacts have been selected for The Coast & the Sea: Marine and Maritime Art in America, offering audiences a rich trove of maritime works set in a meaningful historical and cultural narrative.

Thomas Birch (1779-1851), Escape of the U.S. Frigate Constitution, 1838, oil on canvas. Bequest of Matilda Wolfe Bruce, 1908.5
