About this Work of Art ~
Red Boat" was
created in 1968. Downtown, near the South Street
Seaport in New York City, unique boats are docked
- some very old, some just simple fishing vessels.
On this day, Laszlo Tar finds this beautiful
red boat standing firmly against a stormy sky,
with the Brooklyn skyline in the distance and
the stars and stripes waving in the wind. The
boat is the historic Ambrose. The Ambrose lightship
was built in 1908 to guide ships safely from
the Atlantic Ocean into the broad mouth of lower
New York Bay between Coney Island, New York and
Sandy Hook, New Jersey—an area filled with
sand bars and shoals invisible to approaching
vessels. The Ambrose was given to the Seaport
Museum by the U.S. Coast Guard in 1968. A wonderful
and painterly piece - perfect for any collection.
