The Flying Dutchman

~1887: National Museum of American Art; Washington, DC

Scene from the ancient story of the Flying Dutchman: a Dutch captain swears that he can sail around the Cape of Good Hope even against adverse winds. God curses him for his blasphemy by stopping time; until his son brings him a fragment of the true cross to kiss. In this scene, the son, grown old, hails his father's ship.
