A marine painting about change, the first all steam powered Atlantic crossing.
Marine #painting by Gordon Frickers
Exhibited at the European Parliament, May 2011
Any reputable gallery could sell this painting for at least £3,000, probably 5 or 8 however, it’s gone so that’s that.
Your best value is to buy or commission from a dedicated artist, I recommend me ! Buy direct from my studio; a reputable, well established artist who is proven to have produced famous paintings, Gordon Frickers, for a sound investment.
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’.
