Curtis Jere "Yacht Race"



"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea.  And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears.  We are tied to the ocean.  And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or watch it -  we are going back from whence we came."
(Remarks at the Dinner for the America's Cup Crews, September 14, 1962)
- John F. Kennedy
If you are tied to the ocean and go back to the sea to sail, swim or watch it, you will appreciate this wonderful Curtis Jere wall sculpture.  It features two racing yachts, the 'Yanks' and the 'Aussies' with polychromed sailors and patinated brass sails.  Brass rods suggest the turbulent sea and the boats round a flagged buoy.  31" h., 48" w., 5" d.  American, c. 1970's  $475.00
