Description:
Jack L. Gray (American, 1927-1981) The celebrated Canadian schooner Bluenose at sea signed and dated 'Jack L. Gray 1959' (lower right) oil on canvas 32 x 50 in. (81.3 x 127 cm.) painted in 1959 Lot Notes Designed specifically to race for the so-called InternationalFishermen's Trophy yet still primarily a working fishing boat,Bluenose was one of those rare hybrids which somehow managed tostraddle the vast gulf which separated the totally disparate worldsof ocean racing and deep-sea fishing. The International Fishermen's Trophy was a prize announced in 1920by W.H. Dennis, proprietor of the Halifax Herald newspaper, tochallenge the belief that the contenders for the America's Cup mustalways be thoroughbred yachts rather than simple working boatscapable of taking advantage of a good wind. The first race for thetrophy took place in October 1920 but was won by the Massachusetts'schooner Esperanto, from Gloucester, against the Canadian Delawana.Stung by this defeat, a well-known though self-styled amateur navalarchitect from Nova Scotia named William J. Roue designed Bluenose,little realising that his schooner would soon become one ofCanada's most celebrated saltwater heroines. Built by Smith &Rhuland at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, early in 1921, Bluenosedisplaced 285 tons and measured 143 feet in length with a 27 footbeam. Constructed of wood throughout, she needed a crew of at leasttwenty to work her effectively and her first skipper was AngusWalters, one of the most successful fishermen on the Grand Banksand a man who had already acquitted himself well during the trialsahead of the 1920 contest. Esperanto having been wrecked in thesummer of 1921, the Americans initially put forward the Mayflowerbut she was rejected in favour of the Elsie which Bluenose soundlybeat by more than two miles on consecutive days that October. The next year, 1922, Bluenose beat the newly-designed Henry Fordskippered by Clayton Morrissey and although the 1923 race wasadjudged a draw, it was a controversial decision and Angus Waltersregarded himself and Bluenose as the real victors. Partly becauseof this, the International Trophy was not contested again until1931 when Bluenose convincingly beat the American challengerGertrude L. Thebaud, despite having lost to her in a similar matchthe previous year. Acclaimed wherever she went, Bluenose's fameeven spread across the Atlantic and she was invited to participatein several English regattas during 1935 where she performed well.The final International Fishermen's Trophy contest was held in 1937and Bluenose retained her title to the last, winning three racesout of five against her 1931 adversary Gertrude Thebaud prior toretiring from racing altogether. Laid up after the outbreak ofWorld War II, when the presence of German U-boats threatened allthe Grand Banks' schooners, she was sold to the West Indies'Trading Company in 1942 and put to work on the inter-island tradein the Caribbean until 1946 when she ran aground off Haiti, brokeher back and sank. So famous was she in her own time that images of her adornedCanadian stamps and coins before the War which then served to keepher memory alive after her loss; in fact, her place in the nationalpsyche remained so strong that the Nova Scotia government built areplica of her in 1963 which is still used as a goodwill ambassadorfor the province.
