The MD required 3 paintings of high enough quality to present to Royalty, for the boardroom and for the main saloon of the new ship. He chose

Gordon Frickers , confident he has plenty of experience of this sort of work so specifications and budget were quickly sorted and the artist produced an appropriate contract to cement the agreement.
