If you’d like a painting like this you know where to come.

The ‘crack’ clipper ship “Samuel Plimsoll” loading migrants from the Plymouth depot, bound for South Australia as she annually for 15 years, returning with wool.

In it’s small way this marine painting will become a part of the story of the rightly famous man who launched this successful ship, the ‘Samuel Plimsoll‘.

Samuel Plimsoll loading migrants at Plymouth.

About :

A most unusual painting for several reasons.

A part of the story of the rightly famous man who launched this successful ship, the ‘Samuel Plimsol‘.

My good friend Gilbert Duval, the deputy Mayor of Théhillac in Southern Brittany has been an immense help to with my settling here. 

In appreciation I asked him if he’d like a small painting.

Gilbert has long admired my painting which currently hangs on my salon wall, of “Plymouth, Emigration Depot“.

He recently acquired and renovated a small, beautiful gold frame hence the size of this picture.

M. Duval is himself an artisan of great skill having owned a foundry, another story for another time, maybe..

Over a bottle of good wine we decided to make this new painting of ‘Samuel Plimsoll‘ to fit his frame and as a thank you for the many times he has staunchly supported my activities which he considers, benefit the village.
