“The Wizard And The Queen: Captain Nat Herreshoff Helms GLORIANA, 1891”
By Russ Kramer
Oil on Linen, 26” x 44”
Revolutionary among the forty-six-foot class with her spoon bow and cutaway forefoot, GLORIANA — dubbed “The Queen of the Waters” — went undefeated during her first season of 1891, and established Nathaniel Herreshoff — “The Wizard of Bristol” — as the preeminent designer of his time.
