Textured Giclee on Canvas
30 x 24 in
Open Edition "In the late 1940's, Charleston was the home port to a collection of merchant marines, dock workers, and watermen of all descriptions. Many had little formal schooling but possessed an "education" that came from travel to distant ports-of-call like Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Panama. These characters, like the one pictured here, filled with swagger and tattoos, told stories of tramp steamers working between Charleston and Jacksonville, as well as the torrid zones of dark rum and dark-eyed women." -- The Artist, John Carroll Doyle
