Early Vintage Seascape with Portrait of a Schooner-Rigged Yacht, signed and dated Carl Schroeder, 1937, an un-tutored oil on canvas seascape painting with a port side view of a large schooner rigged racing yacht with all canvas aloft including topsails and staysails, smartly uniformed crew, captain and first mate visible on deck, a lookout posted on the foremast crosstrees, a burgee, pennant and flag flying on the fore and main peaks, with a one design class designation A-1 on the mainsail; a low-lying spit of land with red and white cottages is visible near in background beyond the bowsprit; signed and dated Carl Schroeder, 1937 in the lower right.

The painting is in near excellent condition, with only a stretcher line visible down the left side and one small pin hole on the right side. The painting is mounted in a contemporary carved an gilded frame.

The artist has not been identified, but the style and subject is consistent with either the American or Danish schools. The 1930s was a golden age decade for the J-Boats and other great ocean racing yachts. The A class designation suggests very large vessels built for offshore cruises and heavy weather and seas.
