Antique oil painting of  EMPRESS OF IRELAND ca.1907
Choice large-size antique oil on canvas ship portrait painting of the "EMPRESS OF IRELAND" circa 1907. Built in 1906 for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company Line, it sailed routinely between Quebec City and Liverpool. She sunk in May 29, 1914 in a tragic collision on the St. Lawrence River with over a thousand souls lost. (A great deal of information is available) Signed "W.KITZIG" lower left. Kitzig worked for the Company painting company liners and the ship depicted in the lower left is probably "Empress of Britain". Very good condition on its original stretchers. It could use a cleaning and repair to a small hole upper right. Size: 41 x 27 inches.
