Marjorie Gotkin created over 300 watercolor and gouache paintings in the Tall Ship series. Many were painted in conjunction with Op-Sail in Manhattan in the 1970's. Using palette knives her paintings show the impressions of majesty and power of these ships. The sea, sky and ships become one of turbulence and serenity. Many of these works are in Limited Edition and reproductions of them are in the Smithsonian Institution American Museum/Portrait Gallery Library under "Marjorie and Jerry Gotkin Collection 1965-2007".
