My favorite Titanic artist, hands down, is Ken Marschall. But there are 2 other Titanic paintings (by 2 different artists) I love as well...
One is a great port aft side glipse of a sinking Titanic- Chris Mayger (i believe) is the artist. This painting is on the softbound edition of A Night To Remeber.

Where is the original painting?


There is another classic Titanic painting- I have also seen on an earlier paperback edition of A Night To Remember -back in the 50s- But Im at a loss as to the name of the artist. Think of a view of Titanic , sinking, a view from astern, and icebergs towered ahead....Does anyone know the painting Im refering to, and where I can get a print?

Thanks

Hi, Tarn!

I'm afraid I don't know if prints are available -- perhaps a search engine might be of assistance.

>btw-I imagine MI must be in mourning, after over >a century, Oldsmobile is shutting down...

Yes, but I hear that the Hupmobile is making a comeback. :)

All my best,

George

The Hupmobile is coming back? Excellent!
Perhaps the Hudson, Kaiser and Frasier will return as well!


regards

The Willy Stoewer picture is in the Corbis-Bettmann archive but I don't know that Corbis owns exclusive rights to its reproduction. I believe it is in the collections of several photo agencies. I am almost certain it is a rights-protected image, however.

If that painting is the same as the one on the cover of Last Log of the Titanic by David Brown I think it is by Norman Wilkinson. If I am wrong then someone please let me know.

Chris Mayger was a prolific maritime artist in the 70's and he was my number one artist until I discovered Ken Marschall's work in the mid 80's.
Mayger's Titanic shows us a realistic ship under a fanciful sky whereas Ken painted as realistically as possible. The first Marschall I saw blew me away as it showed the sinking as I sw it in my head when I read Lord, Marcus et al.
A volume of Mayger's work still has pride of place on my book shelf in its own write alongside Marschall's works.

cheers

Martin, may I ask the name of the collection? I'm unfamiliar with his work, but his rendering on the cover of ANTR has got me interested.
