Commentary: Schoonover traveled to Cuba twice. First, he took his bride, Martha, on their honeymoon to Havana, Cuba, (February 4-10, 1911), continuing on to New Orleans, Louisiana (February 10-26). The second trip was with Irenee duPont to Xanadu, his home on Varadero Beach, Cuba.
On both trips, the artist gathered information about pirates, took photographs, and made sketches. It is thought that the artist rendered these drawings of sailboats (#2398 and #2398s) based on the work he had done. It is unclear why the date with the signature in 1945, but may have been when he finished it.
