With an early morning view of Manhattan in the background, this painting portrays a black-hulled freighter being escorted by a reddish-brown tugboat from the docks into the East River. To the right, a barge crosses the river and although details of the port are blurred by smoke and steam, one can still discern the outlines of several ships still in port. Signed in lower left: Carlton T. Chapman/ The East River
Gift of Mrs. Carlton T. Chapman
