Untitled Image (Enslaved Africans Landed at American Port)

Description

This image depicts a row boat filled with Africans being landed from a slave ship at anchor at an unidentified port in the Americas. Appears to be nineteenth century rendition of a seventeenth century event. Perhaps painted by Howard Pyle (1853-1911), who was an American illustrator and author, primarily for young people. He is credited with creating what has become the modern stereotype of pirate dress. See images H007 and H009.
