The Sinking of the Titanic
This is my 1997 painting on the sinking of the Titanic. It is based on a print from a 1912
book. I found the book in the attic of my old home. Some photos of the book are included, below. The covers and
several of the front pages are missing from the book. The phrase, "Wreck of the Titanic," is printed on the top of
the pages. I've done some research on the book. I believe it is a copy of the Story of the Wreck of the
Titanic: The Ocean's Greatest Disaster, Memorial Edition, edited by Everett Marshall, 1912.
(Collectors - See "Notice" at the bottom of the page.)
The painting appears in Lawrence Jackson's, Castles in the Sea: all about icebergs,
illustrated by Diana Dabinett, 2000, p. 27.
As mentioned earlier, below are several photos of the 1912 book. The discovery of the book, back in
1997, inspired the painting.

of the Titanic, I am offering the painting (The frame is slightly damaged and stained on the liner.), a copy of
Castles in the Sea, and the1912 book, as a package. The asking price is fifteen hundred
