Piece together art from PEM's Collections! Although a native of Salem, Benjamin Franklin West's signature style of ship portraits is derivative of the clean and precise methods practiced by the Mediterranean school of marine painting. The artist’s paintings, such as this portrait of the Salem bark Imaum that traded with Zanzibar in the 1850s, are classic examples of early American marine painting.
