    I decided to start a thread on Ken's artwork because it is something that I am in awe of.
    If something arrives in Wellington NZ then I'm onto it.

    Here is a starter...
    You have just won the first prize of a competition which is funding to commission a KM original.
    WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE HIM CREATE?
    This is not limited to the TITANIC but can apply to events in the life and demise of other ships like BRITANNIC, LUSITANIA, QUEEN MARY/ QUEEN ELIZABETH, NORMANDIE, ANDREA DORIA, etc

    Let your imaginations loose!

    I would stay at the Titanic. Something I always wanted to see on picture is the wreck of the Titanic as it would have looked hours after hitting the bottom. Before the decaying commenced. I would also love to see detailed pictures of how the detoration has proceceded along the years and also what will happen to the wreck in the future. I can see this before me in my imagination, but to see a painting of it would be great.

    That's how I would use my first prize

    Also some drawings of the interior from the wreck directly after sinking would be interesting to see.

    I have seen this one before. Nice illustration, who has done this?

    Actually I meant something more detailed like the drawings of the wreck by Ken Marshall as seen in "The discovery of the Titanic"

    Thanks for posting this picture

    Hi all,
    Something I would LOVE to see Ken do, and it is something no one has yet painted, is an illustration of either the Mackay Bennett or Minia on site at the disaster area and engaged in the sad work of recovering victims and wreckage from the sea. I picture the cable ship in the background, one of it's cutters with men in the foreground recovering people/objects, and the sea strewn with wreckage and debris. I feel this would be a very powerful and moving image which would drive home the reality and humanity of the disaster. Regards, Steve Santini.

    I agree with you totally Steve. That image would very much illustrate the tragedy of the disaster in a way I don't believe I have ever seen before. I can see that drawing in my mind.
    It speaks tranquility, sadness, chaos and dejection.

    Dear Stefan,
    I have seen that image in my mind for more than 20 years now. It is indeed very touching and also very haunting...

    Stefan I don't know who drew it or where I got it from, but it's a interesting picture. I wonder what will be left of the Titanic 2062. 150 years after the disaster.

    it would be interesting if Ken Marshall could do a painting which illustrate inside the Titanicwreck or the sinking of Carpathia.

    Hej förrästen Stefan!

    This is the most haunting picture I have ever seen of the ship. The hair on the back of my neck raises up every time I see it. It is called "And The Band Played On"

    As far as a painting I personally would like to see of Ken Marschall, I am not picky. I admire all work he feels inspired to do.
    Does anyone happen to know if he has a gallery or way to view his originals? I bet they are more spectacular than in the books.

    Mikael, thank you for posting the image. I had not come across it before.

    Colleen
