    Literature
    H.S. Sniffen, Antonio Jacobsen - The Checklist: Paintings and Sketches by Antonio N.G. Jacobsen (1850-1921), New York, 1984, p. 230, no. 15.
    H.S. Sniffen, Antonio Jacobsen's Painted Ships on Painted Oceans, Mariners' Museum, Newport News, Virginia, 1994, p. 64, illustrated.

    The present work was recorded in H.S. Sniffen's checklist of paintings by Antonio Jacobsen and is listed as one of three paintings depicting the S.S. Otranto in the author's original publication. The other two works, painted circa 1878 and in 1890 were listed in a private collection in New York and at Parker Gallery in England in 1958 respectively. A sketch of the S.S. Otranto done in 1878 was listed in the collection of The Mariners' Museum, Newport News, Virginia.

    The S.S. Otranto was a transitional sail and steam cargo ship built in 1877 by Earle's Co. in Hull, England for the British shipping company Thomas Wilson Sons and Company or Wilson Line of Hull as it was more commonly known. In the present work, the red and white signal flag of Wilson Line of Hull is present on the S.S. Otranto's mast. On February 15, 1896, she ran aground and was wrecked three nautical miles west-southwest of Fire Island Lighthouse on the southern shore of Long Island, New York. Several months later in April 1896 after her wreck, she was broken up.
