About

The whaling ship, Essex, in calm seas. On the reverse, the artist writes that—for wind-powered sailing ships—a day with no wind was feared almost as a storm. The Essex is arguably the most famous Nantucket whaling ship in history. The Essex was a successul whaler during her carreer, but it was her unfortunate destruction by a sperm whale—and the unspeakable horrors that befell her crew afterward—that served as the inspiration for the first Great American Novel, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale.
