Russ Kramer Lecture on Historically-Correct Recreations of Famous Yacht Races

19th July 2021
Great Yachts: The Marine Paintings of Russ Kramer
Great Yachts: The Marine Paintings of Russ Kramer feature in the latest Herreshoff Museum lecture series

Acclaimed American artist Russ Kramer, who specializes in historically-correct dynamic recreations of famous yacht races and turn-of-the-century yachting society, will give a presentation surveying his oil paintings, inspirations, methods and techniques in a Virtual Lecture by zoom on Thursday as part of the Herreshoff Museum lecture series.

Russ will focus on the great Herreshoff America’s Cup defenders from 1893-1930 as well as other famous HMC designs such as GLORIANA, and the New York 30-, 40- and 70-foot classes.

Today, Russ Kramer is widely regarded to be among the country’s leading marine artists. His large-scale studio paintings create ‘first-hand’ experiences for the viewer, putting you right on board during some of history’s greatest yacht races or turn-of-the-century luxury vessels. A sense of the dramatic moment, combined with meticulous research and attention to detail, have found considerable appeal and sell quickly into private and corporate collections. His works are unique and immediately recognizable, combining narrative, historical, figurative and maritime disciplines.

The talk is on  July 22, 2021, and begins at 7 pm, Eastern Time (or midnight in Ireland).
