Cunard Ocean Line Aquitania
Grand ocean liner.Rosenvinge, an accomplished maritime painter, was most active between 1913 and 1933. During those years he created a number of fine posters for Cunard and the Orient Line. In his view here of Cunard's Aquitania - she was known as ""the ship beautiful"" - the vessel seems to take on even greater majesty in contrast to the small tender. And the Rosenvigne technique is so masterful you can almost hear cawing gulls an smell the acrid smoke.
