Ships, a debt in part repaid :

I learnt much from some of the last Britons to work cargo under sail, seamanship, selfreliance, many attitudes, which have become for me, intuitive, instinct, part of my soul.

We shall not see their like again, nor another like me, we are the last of the breed.

I am now sharing this with you.

The original long since sold to a gentleman in Plymouth.

Ships, an invaluable connection :

My basic seamanship and respect for salt waters was learnt as an adolescent with the very last men who traded without engines.

Those iron Men represented the very last of their kind.

They were in a very real sense an honour to be with as the sun set gloriously on the long history of British merchant sail.

More recently, I have come to realise, to have this connection, unique among today’s marine artists, with  those tough, modestly courageous, hard working and very skilled men is a qualification, an honour.

These hardy men were and still are a profound influence of my marine paintings.

Bonhams :

As Gordon’s marine art here demonstrates, over the years Gordon Frickers has deepened his affinity for merchant sailing ships, painted many and sailed upon a few including ‘Maria Asumpta”: Nick Bonham, director, Bonhams of Knightsbridge, London.

At the time the ‘Maria Asumpta’ was the oldest sailing 19th century square rigger anywhere, and still capable of carrying cargo, Maria Asumpta.
