Emigration, Plymouth is meticulously researched, circa 1872.
My wish is that someone buys this historic painting for the people of Plymouth City.
Probably not, after all the city of Chester missed out with the magnificent ‘Port of Chester 1863’ which went elsewhere to a private buyer.
Gordon Frickers is widely considered a master of spectacular paintings.
Frickers art has been and is the choice of many distinguished people and renowned companies.
Painting Emigration :
We do not have to be an art critic to instinctively feel the painter has a complete understanding of the nucleus of the moment.
Paintings like ‘Emigration Plymouth’ have an existence beyond time as normally perceived.
Yet, ‘Emigration Plymouth’ has an existence very much of our real world.
‘Emigration Plymouth’ will continue to communicate to generations way beyond our own.
So very many famous voyages, so many lives reborn, at the time, Plymouth had the best organised emigration depot in Britain.
In the wake of the Mayflower, under a Harvest Moon, the famous clipper, ‘Samuel Plimsol‘ is preparing to make sail at Plymouth, Devon, England.
This fine painting as yet never exhibited in Plymouth shows you a lost history and yet one Plymouth and Plymouthians should celebrate, be proud of.
The theme :
Emigration at one of the most historic pieces of water in Britain, The Cattewater, Plymouth, England.
We have here Mount Batten, Jennycliff and Plymouth Sound with a harvest moon over a famous ship the Aberdeen built ship rigged clipper, ‘Samuel Plimsoll‘.
I painted Emigration Plymouth for several reasons.
Emigration Plymouth is a part of Plymouth and migration history that people today can be inspired by and proud of.
Emigration Plymouth is a reminder to people who forget or are unaware that migration is not a one way traffic.
The real issue is, does the host land benefit from migration, in who’s opinion, if so how, where is the proof ?
Emigration and the Plymouth Depot :
At last this lost Plymouth history is now documented by this painting.
Tens of thousands of migrants passed through Plymouth particularly during the 18 th and 19 th century.
Any competent gallery will be delighted to offer this painting at this price.
Your best value is to buy from a dedicated artist- buy from a reputable, dedicated, established artist direct from his studio.
You can acquire ‘Plymouth, Emigration’ or commission a painting like this.
“Samuel Plimsoll” :
this famous clipper is one of the fastest ever built.
Here she sails specially fitted for emigration, regularly sailing from Plymouth to the Antipodes.
“Samuel Plimsoll” will return usually with wool, racing the best ships of her day including the renowned clippers ‘Cutty Sark‘, ‘Thermopylae‘ and ‘Caliph‘.
