Bowsing Down the Foretack
“Bowsing Down the Foretack” black and white scrimshaw on ancient walrus tusk ivory by Gerry Dupont. Crewmen of the Charles W. Morgan struggle mightily with the sail. Not an easy task by a long shot. Award winning scrimshander, Dupont, is often celebrated for his detailed wharf scenes, but this demonstrates his versatility with all subjects. From the collection of one of our clients who is no longer with us. Everything works with this one.
