ATLANTIC, Signed Lithograph
Atlantic, is from The Great Yachts series. The print portrays the three-masted, 185 foot schooner Atlantic, crossing the "Pond" to England in just 12 days, 4 hours, 1 minute and 19 seconds. This record was set in the Ocean Cup Race of 1905 and was held for no less than 75 years. Tim Thompson is a self-taught painter and one of the few young marine artists utilizing traditional oil techniques. By placing layer upon layer of translucent wash on canvas, Thompson is able to produce a luminosity that is rarely seen in contemporary marine paintings. Displaying an elegance and sophistication reminiscent of works by the 19th century masters of marine art, his works are widely collected by marine art connoisseurs around the world.
Lithograph, printed on 230 gram artboard, signed by the artist.
