Bremen (New York)

WATERCOLOR ON ARCHES PAPER. 20,3 x 33,7 cm. [SOLD]
This small watercolor painting shows the arrival of Bremen in New York. The Manhattan skyline can be seen appearing out of the mist. I this painting I wanted to capture the excitement of a liner which arrives in the New World after many days at sea. The misty colors and calm weather conditions makes this an atmospheric painting to look at.

Seven Lives

When the former Bremen then named Filipina Saudi 1 was on its way to the breakers in Taiwan towed by the Dutch tug Sumatras disaster struck. In a heavy storm in the Indian Ocean the once so pride Bremen sank at position 07°35’N60°12’E. Seven cats onboard the ship lost their lives. Besides all the speculations of her end a romantic reading is that the ship chose a seaman’s grave over the cutting torches.
