Emigration, finishing touches, Fine Art by Gordon Frickers.

Gordon Frickers is widely considered a master of spectacular paintings and his art has been and is the choice of many distinguished people and renowned companies.

Painting Emigration :

so very many famous voyages, so many lives reborn, at the time, 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 of this painting is 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, if so how, where is the proof,  and in who’s opinion.

 Emigration the Plymouth Depot :

is at last now documented by this painting.

At least as far back as the famous ‘Mayflower’ voyage (1620), Plymouth citizens played a central role in ‘exporting’ migrants.
In other ports migrants were often robbed, Plymouthians were notably kind, generous, helpful
They created the best migrant depot in Britain.
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.
