Our painting, The Yacht Race is a rare and wonderful example of Jacobsen's early work at the beginning of his artistic career in America. In this fine painting, we see the artist’s great skill and absolute attention to detail as he successfully captures the excitement and drama of two competing schooners from the New York Yacht Club, which was celebrating its’ thirtieth anniversary in 1874.
