Back in Prouts Neck, Maine, after one of his winter visits to the Bahamas, Homer painted this dramatic scene of imminent disaster. A man faces his demise on a dismasted, rudderless fishing boat, sustained by only a few stalks of sugarcane and threatened by sharks and a distant waterspout. He is oblivious to the schooner on the left horizon, which Homer later added to the canvas as a sign of hopeful rescue. Some art historians have read The Gulf Stream as symbolic, connecting it with the period’s heightened racial tensions. The painting has also been interpreted as an expression of Homer’s presumed sense of mortality and vulnerability following the death of his father.

Select a product material option

In the product dropdown lists you can choose your individual size and material. Choose among the following product options now to match your preferences in size and material:

  • Canvas print: The printed canvas material mounted on a wood stretcher frame. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. Therefore, a canvas print is suited for all types of walls.
  • Poster (canvas material): Our poster print is a printed sheet of canvas paper with a fine finish on the surface, which resembles the actual masterpiece. It is perfectly suited for putting your art replica with a special frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin of around 2-6cm round about the artwork in order to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
  • Glossy acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): A glossy acrylic glass print, which is sometimes named as a UV print on plexiglass, makes the artwork into brilliant home décor. The major upside of an acrylic glass print is that contrasts and granular painting details will be more recognizeable with the help of the fine gradation in the print.
  • Aluminium dibond: Aluminium Dibond prints are metal prints with an outstanding depth. A direct Aluminium Dibond Print is the best introduction to the sophisticated world of fine art reproductions with aluminum. For the Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print the work of art right onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum material. The bright and white components of the work of art shimmer with a silky gloss but without the glare. The direct UV print on Aluminum Dibond is the most popular entry-level product and is a contemporary way to display art, since it draws attention on the whole artwork.
