Rosenfeld collection at City Island Nautical Museum

Morris Rosenfeld
Constellation - 1908
The City Island Nautical Museum announces:
The Rosenfeld Collection is the largest single collection of maritime photography in the world, and although it is housed at Mystic Seaport, the photographers who created it lived and worked on City Island.  Morris Rosenfeld and his sons defined the ultimate in maritime art photography. Their images of sailboats, steam yachts, naval vessels, powerboat races, leisure activities, and every America’s Cup Race from 1885 to 1992 are world famous. Morris, together with his three sons, David, Stanley, and William, produced nearly a million photographs. This newly curated exhibition features images of beautiful boats from the island’s yacht yards, including Dorade, Brilliant, Bolero, Constellation, Infanta, and Analgra. Curator Tom Nye has also created a unique slide show featuring Rosenfeld images and photographs from the museum’s collection.

190 Fordham Street, City Island, NY
Hours: Saturday and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. and by special appointment.
