L.A. DUNTON - 1996
Availability: In stock
John MeCray brings us dramatically close to the 123 foot fishing schooner L.A. Dunton as she lifts to an ocean swell in the shadow of the ocean liner Leviathan. The Dunton was launched in 1921, the same year the Leviathan underwent an extensive refit after seeing service as a troopship during W.W.I. The meeting is conjecture, but it beautifully symbolizes the passing of a colorful era. The great liner moves off into the mist and now is gone but the L.A. Dunton, bathed in sunlight, survives and can be seen at her berth at Mystic Seaport.
MeCray's first print of the L.A. Dunton was published in 1978 and has long been sold out. It is now listed at 30 times the issue price on the secondary market. The new print "L.A. Dunton-1996" officially commerates the 75th anniversary of her launching.
