Maritime Art of Pensacola and the Gulf Coast

Dick Schweinfurth - Artist

Dick has brought to the canvas what is but a memory to most folks. Pensacola's Seaport was for years one of the busiest ports on the Gulf. This painting depicts Mahogany logs being unloaded from a ship at the Port of Pensacola. They were then rounded up and towed by a little tugboat to the mill located on Bayou Chico and there sawed up into lumber. Dick has been an artist since the 1930's and lives in Lillian, Alabama. He is a member of the Artel Gallery in Pensacola. His phone number is 251.961.3329.
