A marine painting about change.
Marine #painting by Gordon Frickers
Exhibited at the European Parliament, May 2011
Any half decent gallery could sell this painting for at least £3,000, probably 5 or 8 however, in these difficult times I’m looking for a quick ‘Internet’ sale if only to keep my studio open for a bit longer.
In this marine #painting the paddle steamer “Sirius” is being overhauled by the ‘crack’ Liverpool clipper “Dreadnought” ~ but history remembers better the diminutive Sirius.
‘Dreadnaught’ was famous in her day, there is even a shanty specifically about her, a ‘crack’ Liverpool / New York packet clipper, was capable of 20 + knots.
Sirius made 8 knots and yet the first powered only transatlantic crossing thus with her historic voyage a new age of ocean travel commenced.
Sirius is also the inspiration of the Atlantic crossing chapter by Jules Verne in his book ‘Eighty Days Around The World’.
