"Encounter at the Horn"
A recent painting of the meeting off Cape Horn of the American clipper ships 'Flying Fish' and the 'John Gilpin.' Both were bound to San Francisco in 1853 when the Flying Fish closed on the Gilpin. Both ships remained in company for some time and were only hours apart from reaching the Golden Gate at the same time.
