Monomoy - Giclée Print on Archival Stretched Canvas 11” x 14”


From a series of historic Nantucket Sailing ships acrylic paintings shown on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts in 2005, Monomoy was a whaling ship out of Nantucket Island during the Age of Whaling. Her name is derived from the native population found on both Cape Cod and Nantucket, the Monomoyics.  Her anchor has come loose and is hanging dangerously under the bow. If it hits the hull and stoves in the hull, the hole could sink the ship. She is flying an assortment of flags: American, home port, etc. My collection exhibits many maritime signal flags because of their vital importance to sailors of the time.

Before the telegraph, the telephone…and texting, communication from ship to ship and ship to shore depended on colorful signal flags, homeport flags and national flags. Maritime signal flags consisted of twenty-six flags (the alphabet), plus single flags that were individual, unique messages. Lovers of ships and the sea will be interested in this Giclee print collection being offered for the first time. Historic Ships, Whaling, Nantucket, Cape Cod, Seas of the World, The Great Age of Sail, and Maritime Signal Flags.
