    Historical or Biographical Note

    Seaman and artist Herbert Tiesler (1894-1975) was born in the small town of Oels, Silesia, in what was then known as Eastern Prussia. He attended art school but "always had a longing for the sea" and in 1909 hired on for his first voyage as a deck boy on a roundtrip to England. Subsequent voyages took him to Australia and South America and, in 1914, he signed on as a seaman on the German four-mast bark HANS and sailed around Cape Horn to Santa Rosalia, Mexico.
