Weird coincidence (and info request)

I found this photo on Twitter:

I immediately thought of a painting I did ages ago while in college. I copied it from a hardback edition of NY Metropolitan Museum catalog. (I painted several from it as practice.) I didn't intend this as an exact copy, but as a present f/ parents. My painting (photo is a bit washed out):

Now the request: I can't find that catalog, and I've forgotten the original artists name. The original is more rectangular than mine. If anyone recognizes it, please let me know.

1. William Bradford (1823-1892)?

I know he was keen on ship scapes (ships, ocean, with land and beach as frames for the scene).

Your painting has his style.

Just guessing...

2. Thx f/ suggesstion. Does look like his work

But site claiming 'complete works' didn't have that one. I painted that in 70s, copied from original photo (about 2x3 inch pic). Just adjusted f/ more square canvas I already had ready.
