‘R.M.S. Titanic Leaving the White Star Dock, Southampton, 10th April 1912′
Limited edition print available while stocks last. Rated by a leading Titanic author, expert and memorabilia collector as ‘the best painting of the Titanic ever produced’, this print faithfully replicates the original painting and depicts a dramatic moment in history as Titanic leaves on her fateful maiden voyage.
At Noon on Wednesday, 10th April 1912, the White Star liner R.M.S. Titanic cast her lines from the White Star Dock, Southampton and began what was to become the most famous maiden voyage in history.
Historically accurate, the painting was painstakingly researched using existing Titanic photographs and records and shows Titanic as she is edged away from the dockside, the Neptune towing and tugs Albert Edward, Hercules and Vulcan at her bow. With Titanic Captain Edward J. Smith on the bridge the huge liner was maneuvered into the River Test.
On the left of the painting are the White Star liner Majestic and the American Line steamers Philadelphia and St. Louis, each in its day the greatest liner in the world, now dwarfed by the enormous Titanic.
The three liners had had their voyages cancelled due to a coal strike, and their coal and many of their crew were transferred to the Titanic. In the background can be seen the Southwestern Hotel where many Titanic passengers stayed on the eve of the voyage.
This stunning Titanic print is available as a limited edition of 850 copies worldwide, signed and numbered by the artist.
