In 1995 artist Ellen Vomberg painted the work within an ornamental frame in the De Ruyterstraat Out together, together At home. The ship SS Rotterdam of the Holland-America Line is waved goodbye in the painting. The style of the painting is a homage to the famous posters of the Holland-America Line from the 1920s and 1930s. The painting fits within the theme of the Noordereiland, which presents itself as a ship that is due to leave Rotterdam at any moment.
