Real "snapshots"

There are not many pictures of America. Yet his long career has largely overlapped the existence of cameras, we must believe she really was forgotten as evidenced by her end of life. Fortunately, she has inspired many painters in various styles but realism often left us beautiful "shots".

Note that this is not America's rig as that with which she won the £100 Cup in 1851: Donald McKay and Edward Burgess refitted her in 1875 and 1885 respectively. By 1887, the rake in her masts was reduced, all her spars were lengthened, she featured a lead keel and carried two extra headsails and a fore gaff topsail. An enlarged rig and modernised build would have kept the ageing America competitive in the light yankee airs.
