This painting by Christian Ludwig Bokelmann (1844-1894), a painter from Harburg who worked in Düsseldorf, shows the moving farewells of emigrants, thousands of whom left for the New World via the port of Hamburg. The port of Harburg was also a port for emigrants in the 19th century, which inspired the artist's depiction.
