White Star Line’s RMS TITANIC – (by James A. Flood) A deck scene of the ill-fated liner. The deck view of the sinking ship, shortly after the collision, shows concern on the faces of Captain Smith, Thomas Andrews, and J. Bruce Ismay, the owner, as they head towards the viewer on their way to inspect the damage. Passengers move about on deck under the brilliantly clear nighttime starry night, their concern warding off the icy cold, their expressive gestures reflecting gradual awareness.
There is a great selections of paintings of famous liners – old and new.
Jim’s well-known artwork is displayed in galleries and private collections throughout the United States and Europe, as well as on the Cunard ships Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Mary 2.
In his paintings, Jim portrays each vessel in historic context. We are in the process of writing in the background events surrounding each painting. If you have some information you would like to add, please send it along; we will be most grateful.
