The Pursuit                                                                            (click on the image to return to the previous page)

The Caribbean was well known as the haunt of pirate ships, and is the context for this painting.

I show an American armed schooner in pursuit of a pirate ship.

The Spanish flag in this instance, on the fleeing craft, would likely have been part of the spoils from an encounter with a Spanish ship.
