A Stern Chase and a Long One
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph, mounted on card. Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists.

He is best known for his paintings of great American yachts of the latter half of the 19th century, which were commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen.In 1884, Frederic Cozzens expanded his audience by making a series of lithographs of his paintings. The first and most brilliant series was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Racesfrom which this print comes.A Stern Chase and a Long One depicts a race that took place in June of 1876 between the Countess of Dufferin , the America , the Grant and Madeleine .
