An anonymous painting of Elieser

Descendants of Nils Landmark, who served as captain on Elieser, donated a painting of the ship to the Mission Archives 23 February 2013. The painting has an inscription "BARQUE ELIESER -- CPT LANDMARK", which suggests that the painting was dedicated to the captain himself. It is now on display at the Mission Museum at MHS.

A reproduction photo of the painting was made by the Mission Archives in July 2013.

Elieser was a three-masted tall ship of the type barque. The name "Elieser" is found both on the bow and on the pennon at the top of the center mast. In the background one can see white cliffs, most likely showing the coastline of the English channel. Perhaps the artist was from Britain.
