Image description

The subject matter of the painting is discussed in The Graphic, Saturday 13th June 1891, p662 'This is a companion piece to Mr Frank Brangwyn's Bound to the West'ard, an engraving of which we published in a recent issue. In that painting the vessel depicted was, as the old proverb has it, in the position of a young bear, with all its sorrows to come. In this picture she is about to have a respite from her labours, and, ceasing awhile from ploughing the deep, will rest on the muddy bottom of Old Father Thames. The sturdy little tug is conveying her to her berth with as much speed as is prudent in a crowded maritime thoroughfare.
