In this majestic composition from Volanakis's Munich period, a steel-hulled steamship makes ready to sail. The hoisted blue signal flag or 'blue peter' on the bow mast denotes that the ship is about to leave port. The engines idle, with smoke billowing from the ship's funnel, the last provisions are loaded from a lighter on the starboard side, and elegantly dressed passengers embark from the port ferry which has tied up at the stern. The keenly observed ship contrasts with the serenely calm waters and sky of a summer's day, revealing Volanakis's abilities both as an accomplished technical draftsman and as a marine painter.
