When the QUEEN MARY, most famous of all the transatlantic ocean liners, retired gracefully to a berth at Long Beach, California in 1967, she brought to an end an era of maritime opulence, romance and glittering extravagance never seen before or since. In her day, the most beautiful ship afloat, she had carried over two million passengers in one thousand lavish Atlantic crossings, her passenger lists studded with Royalty, stars of the silver screen, sports personalities, the rich and famous.
Robert Taylor masterfully recreates a scene from the great ship’s illustrious past, as she sails from New York or Europe in the early post-war period. Alive with beauty, energy and strength, the QUEEN MARY steams majestically past the Statue of Liberty, her bows pointed eagerly towards the Atlantic.
Each print is individually hand signed by the artist Robert Taylor and countersigned by R.M.S. QUEEN MARY’s last skipper:
