The Whale Hunt

Andy Thomas

Many call Andy Thomas the "Storyteller" and if you have ever had a chance to view his work you might just agree. Currently he is telling many stories with his action filled western art. These pieces are bringing the cowboys back to life as well as the American West history. In the past, Andy has painted many subjects from a picnic by the river, kids playing sports to a brutal bear fight. All of his paintings end up telling you, the viewer, some kind of story of our lives.

The Whale Hunt

5,500.00

Whaling, before the advent of powerized harpoons, was a grueling process. The whaling ships would sail as close to the whale herds as they could get before the longboats were dropped for the final leg of the chase. Here, the man with the harpoon is poised, ready to throw when the whale comes back to the surface. The man at the back is counting cadence for the rowers. The reference for the ship was the Charles Morgan, the last wooden whaling ship still afloat. You can see it in Mystic Seaport, Mystic, Connecticutt.
