First Journey of "Victory" - Artwork
Posted by BigJim on Tuesday, October 02, 2018 2:04 PM

For those of you interested in the Victory and artwork, I found this for sale in a famous antique shop here in town. I thought that some of you might be interested in this.
What may seem to be a blur around the bow area is a reflection (probably of me trying to take the picture) and not something on the print.

Steve,
No, I didn't. But, I thought about it as it seems to be a nice piece and I had never seen anything quite like it before.
Anyway, I thought that maybe someone here might be interested, so, I took a picture of it.

There is a companion print by the same artist entitled "The Last Jouney of Victory 1922" showing her as a hulk being taken by steam tug to the drydock where she will be restored and eventually displayed.  The two are usually sold together as a set.

I didn't see that one hanging around, but, I didn't know either existed.

Doing a search, it seems that it is not hard to find either print.
