She never completed her maiden voyage, yet the RMS Titanic is arguably the most famous ship that ever sailed. Ever since that fateful moment in April 1912 when she struck an iceberg and sank in the freezing waters of the North Atlantic, the tragic story of the grandest ship afloat has never ceased to fascinate generation after generation.
This evocative study by world-renowned maritime artist Robert Taylor brings the great ship to life again as she steams majestically down the Solent on 10 April at the outset of her maiden voyage and was painted in 1999 to feature as the frontispiece for his now celebrated book The Maritime Paintings of Robert Taylor. The painting is, however, more than a colorful maritime portrait; it is a poignant testimony to the grandest ship of her time and a desirable piece for anyone with an interest in the story of the Titanic.
