I doubt you will be able to identify the vessels. Might be able to identify the artist. A bit like Chas. Dixon. If it does it would be a First War.

Had to tell if the vessel is WW1 or is it an old vessel that was still sailing in WW2!

Beautiful piece for sure. Thanks. Might put it in the Marine Art gallery.

Morning Steven, it was the artists name I was looking. I have only a part I suspect, of a reproduction stating - 'convoy 1941'. The artists name is missing. I should have made that clear. Much obliged.

A nice atmospheric picture, but has too much artist's licence been applied?
The ships seem to be steaming far too close to each other and in reality more effort would surely be given to reducing all that smoke.
Why do artists love smoke so much? Engineers loathe it.

Smoke not good in a convoy either.

Many thanks Stein, I can see I've been gifted a part, of a watercolour print

A fine little painting!

N. Sotheby-Pitcher is one of the finest!


Could not be Dixon. He died in the 1930s.

Smoke? This vessel was probably coal fired. Lots of photos of convoys show smoke about... some with and some without. I like a bit of smoke in a painting. It gives a sense of movement and direction (apparent) of the wind. I try to show a steam whistle as well... for movement AND sound. For myself, I hate rust on a hull bit when it comes to a painting I'll use enough to get away with it. The stain show the shape of the hull and an anchor would not be right without some rust. :-)
