ISBN: 1841141186
AUTHOR: Kenneth Vard
Liners in Art
Liners in Art
  • Description

Most of the paintings reproduced in this impressive book are part of a collection of modern marine art sourced from offices, museums and private houses around the world. These pictures also provide a record of the age of passenger liner travel which enjoyed its golden period as it was just about to become obsolete in the early 1960s.

The book also relates the stories of the ships and of the companies which operated them, whether they sailed transatlantic, transpacific or east of Suez. These vessels formed the backbone of the world's transportation system before the advent of mass air travel.

Here we have fine examples of the work of maritime artists, past and present, with short biographies of their lives and achievements. The book forms a miniature art gallery within its covers and, as such, has a unique place in the history of marine art.

ISBN 1841141186, hardback, 270x280mm, 220 pages.
