W.A. Coulter painted "Honolulu Harbor" during a visit to Hawaii. It depicts a scene looking toward Honolulu from the sea, with Diamond Head to the right in the Background. In the foreground a bard is hoved to, and a whaleboat is being rowed. There is a U.S. Army transport steamer coming out of the harbor. Also in the scene are a schooner, a native outrigger under sail, and a tug approaching the bark, probably to tow her into the harbor.
