R.M.S STEAMSHIP 
TITANIC
By Edward Paget-Tomlinson (1932-2003)
 

 

Watercolor on paper                                   Signed lower right, September, 2001
Unframed 15 3/4" L x 11 1/4" H                 Framed 21 3/4" x 17 1/2"
 
 
Presented is an original watercolor by Edward Page-Tomlinson, (1932-2003) of the RMS Titanic, by Harland & Wolff for the White Star Line, Liverpool. She is shown steaming away from the viewer on her maiden and fateful voyage. The legend gives the details of this climatic event of April 14, 1912. The painting is in its original frame and matting. Land And Sea Collection is the sole source for six original ship portraits of his work.
 
 
                                                 Close-up and legend
EPT as he was known to many, was a master draftsman and painter of ships and things maritime. With his death his ship portraits will become increasingly valuable since they are quite scarce, and all are in private collections. We currently have for sale:
 
      • M/V Durango, by Harland & Wolff for the Royal Mail Lines, London 
      • RMS Edinburgh Castle,  built 1948 for the Union Castle Lines
      • SS Runic, by Harland & Wolff for Shaw, Savill & Albion, London
      • RMS Titanic, by Harland & Wolff for the White Star Line, Liverpool 
      • Paddle Ferry Will Crooks, by S. White, Cowes for Woolrich Ferry Service, London
      • T.S.S. ORIANA which was built by Vickers-Armstrong for the Orient Line of London, England
THE ARTIST: Edward Paget-Tomlinson died on 10th November 2003 after a long career as a curator and author. He was been better known as a historian, writer of books and museum curator rather than as an artist. Edward graduated from Cambridge with a degree in history and first worked at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Later he joined the Liverpool Maritime Museum as curator of shipping and then went on to setup the new maritime museum at Hull.
 
Later he was a founder of the Boat Museum at Ellesmere Port, specializing in canal and inland waterway craft. His work there formed the basis for his later work of writing about these subjects which he took up on a full-time basis upon leaving here.
 
He was noted for his vast knowledge of waterways matters and wrote extensively on the subject, becoming the acknowledged authority on these matters. He published numerous books, including his magnum opus the Illustrated History of Canals and River Navigations which has become the ‘bible’ for all those working in this field. He also published British Canal and River Craft, another authoritative volume, and worked with Fred Schofield on Humber Keels and Keelmen. His profusely illustrated book, Shipping Company Colours, published after his death is a must for those interested in marine transportation.
 
He was a talented artist, producing drawings and paintings of steamships, ocean liners, canal craft and his other love, railways to illustrate his written work. He wrote for several magazines and produced pictures for many public and private customers for whom he painted a Christmas cards for a number of years.

Edward was considered by those that knew him to be one of Nature’s gentlemen; and it has been said that his demise has left a gap in maritime history which will not be easily filled.

NOTE: The photographs were taken through glass, and there are certain reflections that are not part of the painting.

CONDITION: The painting is in excellent condition and without fault. The photographs were taken though glass, and there are some reflected images.

THE SHIP'S HISTORY:
The RMS Titanic, a British Olympic-class ocean liner, became famous as the largest ocean liner built in her day and also for sinking on her maiden voyage in 1912 with a huge loss of life. The second of a trio of superliners, the Titanic and her sisters were designed to provide a three-ship weekly express service and to dominate the transatlantic travel business for the White Star Line. The Titanic, and her sister ship the Olympic were introduced to the world in a New York Times article on 23 April 1908, almost four years before the sinking.
 
Built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world at the time of her sinking. During the Titanic's maiden voyage (from Southampton, England to Cherbourg, France,then on to Queenstown (Cobh), Ireland and finally New York City), she struck an iceberg at 23:40 (ship's time) on Sunday 14 April 1912, sinking two hours and forty minutes later at 02:20 on Monday 15 April having broken into two pieces at the aft expansion joint.
 
The White Star line designed Titanic to compete with rival company Cunard Line's Lusitania and Mauretania, luxurious ships and the fastest liners on the Atlantic. Titanic and her Olympic -class sisters, Olympic and the then upcoming one thousand foot Gigantic, were intended to be the largest, most luxurious ships ever to operate (the planned name Gigantic was changed to Britannic after the disaster). Titanic was designed by Harland and Wolff chairman William Pirrie, head of Harland and Wolff's design department Thomas Andrews, and general manager Alexander Carlisle, with the plans regularly sent to the White Star Line's managing director J. Bruce Ismay for suggestions and approval. Construction of the Titanic, funded by the American J.P. Morgan and his International Mercantile Marine Co., began on 31 March 1909. Titanic No. 401 was launched two years and two months later on 31 May 1911. Titanic's outfitting was completed on 31 March the following year.
 
Titanic was 882 feet 9 inches long and 92 feet 6 inches at the beam. She had a Gross Register Tonnage of 46,328 tons, and a height from the water line to the boat deck of 60 feet. Her three propellers were driven by two four-cylinder, triple-expansion, inverted reciprocating steam engines and one low-pressure Parsons turbine. Steam was provided by 25 double-ended and 4 single-ended Scotch-type boilers fired by 159 coal burning furnaces that made possible a top speed of 23 knots. Only three of the four 63 foot tall funnels were functional; the fourth, which served only as a vent, was added to make the ship look more impressive. Titanic could carry a total of 3,547 passengers and crew and, because she carried mail, her name was given the prefix RMS (Royal Mail Steamer) as well as SS (Steam Ship).
 
Contemporaries considered the Titanic the pinnacle of naval architecture and technological achievement, and she was thought by The Shipbuilder magazine to be "practically unsinkable." Titanic had a double-bottom hull, containing 44 tanks for boiler water and ballast to keep the ship safely balanced at sea (later ships also had a double-walled hull). Titanic exceeded the lifeboat standard, with 20 lifeboats (though not enough for all passengers). Titanic was divided into 15 compartments. Dividing doors were held up in the open position by electro-magnetic latches that could be closed by a switch on the ship's bridge and by a float system installed on the door itself.
