The Yachting Party
Oil                 30" x 43"              SOLD

In the early 1900s, Newport Harbor was a favored destination for wealthy yachtsmen, just as it is today. Magnificent motor Rhode Island vessels and sailing yachts of every description would crowd together, many hosting lavish parties. Here, guests with a coveted invitation to the ‘social event of the season’ arrive by launch.

Russ Kramer writes: “I am captivated by the majestic motor yachts of this era, grand and magnificent in scale and luxury. Imagine what it might have been like back then, spending the summer months in Newport, feted aboard these floating palaces with a different gala each weekend.”
