The Metropolitan Museum of Art: Publications 2022 is written across a cropped version of Winslow Homer's painting, The Gulf Stream. The painting depicts a shirtless Black man wearing long tan pants lays propped on a small boa that is tipping toward its side on rough, wavy sea. Two sharks with open mouths circle near the boat. There is blood in the water and on one of the sharks' flanks.
