Imagine the salt air and billowing sails with this detailed pin from Charles Sheeler's Pertaining to Yachts and Yachting. Though not a sailor himself, Charles Sheeler made several works on the subject, interpreting the tradition of nautical painting through his own modern style. Here, he emphasizes the ships’ billowing sails, which cut crisp, dynamic arcs across the composition. The sails create a repeating pattern, as if to suggest movement. They also appear to merge with the sky, illustrating their connection to the winds that pull the ships through the waves.
