Maritime artist Gordon Bauwens range of Ocean Liners and Clyde steamers in maritime art prints. Gordon Bauwens ocean liners collection available from the military art company.

The Artist:   Born in Glasgow in 1951, Gordon Bauwens inherited a deep passion for the River Clyde and its ships. As a schoolboy he could often be found among the city's docklands experiencing the sights and atmosphere of the busy port first-hand. Early paintings of such scenes won him gold and bronze medals in regional schools art competitions. In 1967, Gordon was deeply impressed when he witnessed the launch of the last great Cunarder to be built on the Clyde, Queen Elizabeth 2. While employed by a marine engineering consultancy, Gordon developed his own distinctive style in ship illustration and gained qualifications in technical graphics. Currently a graphic designer  for education, he paints marine subjects in his own time for pleasure and on a commercial freelance basis.

Caronia - Edwardian Elegance by Gordon Bauwens.


Caronia - Edwardian Elegance by Gordon Bauwens.

When completed in 1905, TSS Caronia, at nearly 20,000 gross tons, was the largest Cunarder to date. She was an important liner for Cunard in that she and her sister ship, Carmania, were built by John Brown on the Clyde to directly compare the performance of standard reciprocating steam engines with the revolutionary new steam turbine propulsion plant. Known as the Pretty Sisters throughout their long and successful careers, Caronia and Carmania were identical other than in their propulsion units and were effectively test beds for the machinery of the two express transatlantic liners Cunard were planning - the giant sister ships, Lusitania and Mauretania. As the turbine-driven Carmania proved over two knots faster than Caronia, turbine engines were chosen for the subsequent record-breaking Lusitania and Mauretania liners and became the standard method of propulsion used right up until QE2 was built f.........

Memories of an Empress by Gordon Bauwens.


Memories of an Empress by Gordon Bauwens.

The Canadian Pacific liner Empress of Britain preparing for transatlantic departure from Greenock, 1960. Empress of Britain was built in 1956 for Canadian Pacific by Fairfields shipyard, Glasgow. Slightly larger than Sylvania, she too, with her sisters, was designed primarily to operate between the UK and Canada. Sylvania is shown on the Clyde with the paddle steamer Waverley in Caledonian Steam Packet colours.

Her Majestys Royal Yacht Britannia by Gordon Bauwens.


Her Majestys Royal Yacht Britannia by Gordon Bauwens.

The order to build a Royal Yacht as replacement for the obsolete Victoria and Albert was placed in February 1952 with John Brown & Co Ltd. The Clydebank yard won this contract largely because of its experience in building the prestigious Cunard Queens and Caronia. Launched in April 1953 by Her Majesty the Queen, Britannia was the most modern in a long line of Royal Yachts dating back to King Charles IIs Mary, 1660. Britannia was designed as a dual function vessel - as a Royal Yacht in peacetime an as hospital ship in times of hostility. Although built under post war austerity conditions, she provided a classical, well-balanced profile, with meticulous attention paid to detail. Features included innovative funnel design, bulbous bow, stabilisers, superstructure tested in a wind tunnel, and the steel hull rivetted than machined flush above the waterline to give an immaculate finish. The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh took personal interest in the interior design, choosing for the Royal apa.........

Caronia - Of Noble Heritage by Gordon Bauwens.


Caronia - Of Noble Heritage by Gordon Bauwens.

Cunard's most recent liner to bear the name, Caronia (lll), was for many people one of the finest cruise ships afloat. Coupled with her popularity with passengers and crew as an extremely well-appointed vessel, Caronia was admired by ship-lovers everywhere as a truly classic liner with particularly attractive lines and well-balanced profile. Completed in 1973 as the Vistafjord by Swann Hunter Shipbuilders on Tyneside for Norwegian America Line, she was effectively the last major passenger vessel to be constructed in England. Inheriting much of her classic lines from Sagafjord, her older and slightly smaller sistership, Vistafjord's external appearance has remained largely unspoiled throughout her long career as cruise liner. When Vistafjord joined the Cunard fleet in 1983, she retained her name and much of her existing colour scheme, including the attractive dove-grey hull. Externally, only her new red and black funnel and modest .........

RMS Queen Mary - Maritime Masterpiece by Gordon Bauwens.


RMS Queen Mary - Maritime Masterpiece by Gordon Bauwens.

Constructing Yard Number 534 at the John Brown shipyard in Clydebank was truly one of the outstanding achievements in the history of shipbuilding. Unprecedented media interest followed progress on the vast hull taking shape on the banks of the River Clyde. The first British vessel to exceed 1,000 feet in length, she was also the largest moving man-made object built to date. Launched in 1934, RMS Queen Mary was completed two years later. In building the Mary and her consort, Queen Elizabeth, Cunard hoped to recover their, and Britain's, supremacy on the highly competitive North Atlantic passenger sea route. Queen Mary's builder's trials took place in April 1936 amid the estuarial islands of the Clyde, her river of birth, with all eyes especially focused on her high speed runs off Arran. And perform she did! With a top speed of 32.84 knots recorded, Queen Mary easily satisfied Cunard's requirements and ultimately overcame the chal.........

Queen Mary 2 - A Legacy of Pride by Gordon Bauwens.


Queen Mary 2 - A Legacy of Pride by Gordon Bauwens.

Celebrating her first five years in service, Cunard's stately flagship, Queen Mary 2, embarked on her maiden round-Britain cruise in October 2009. During this special voyage, QM2 entered Clyde waters for the first time on October 19, paying homage to the river which began the Cunard dream in 1840 and built over 100 of her illustrious predecessors. Outstanding among these were, Britannia, the very first Cunarder, Lusitania, Aquitania, Caronia, and of course, QM2's legendary Queen predecessors, Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth, and the iconic QE2. All were launched into these same Clyde waters before playing their parts in making the name of Cunard so highly esteemed throughout the maritime world. This highly detailed painting by Gordon Bauwens portrays QM2 as originally scheduled around sunset and escorted by PS Waverley. The mighty flagship is seen bidding farewell to the Clyde, bound for .........

Royal Rendezvous by Gordon Bauwens.


Royal Rendezvous by Gordon Bauwens.

Throughout her later years on the North Atlantic, Cunard's Queen Elizabeth 2 cut a lonely swathe across the waters she was designed to traverse. Thanks to her foresighted dual-purpose design, clever marketing and iconic appeal as the 'last true liner', QE2 outlived all her sea-going competitors and seemed destined to be the last ever passenger liner to regularly ply the Atlantic. She also looked to be the final Queen in service for Cunard. However, in 1999 a decision was made to build on QE2's unique success by adding a giant new transatlantic liner, Queen Mary 2, to the Cunard fleet. Then, almost four years after QM2 entered service in 2004 as the new Company flagship, she and QE2 were joined by another new ship, MV Queen Victoria. Thus, since QV's maiden voyage in December 2007 until QE2's retirement in late 2008, three mighty Cunard Queens sailed concurrently for the first time ever. .........

RMS Queen Elizabeth - Fit for a Queen by Gordon Bauwens.


RMS Queen Elizabeth - Fit for a Queen by Gordon Bauwens.

In 1946 the daunting task of restoring Queen Elizabeth from grey troop carrier into the stateliest of liners was shared between the Clyde and Southampton. Cunard allowed John Brown & Co, the Elizabeths builders, just 10 weeks to transform the vessels structure as she lay at anchor at the Tail othe Bank. The most striking aspect of this work, as the liners drab wartime coat was chipped away, was how in stages from bow to stern, she gradually emerged in gleaming Cunard colours. This phase completed, the vessel returned to Southampton to be refitted with her original furnishings and for dry docking. Setting out for Scotland once more, Commodore Bisset learned that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, Princess Elizabeth and Margaret Rose would join the revitalised vessel on the Clyde for her trials on October 8. On one run over the measured mile off Arran the Queen, invited by the Commodore, took the wheel while her two daughters recorded the time taken with stop watches. Then, her speed trials ov.........

SS Sir Walter Scott by Gordon Bauwens.


SS Sir Walter Scott by Gordon Bauwens.

The handsome steamship, Sir Walter Scott, which sails Loch Katrine in the Trossachs, is named after the author who highlighted the area in his poem of 1810, The Lady of the Lake. Since then, this tranquil wooded loch mirroring the majestic mountain Ben Venue at its easterly end, has been popular with visitors from all over the world. Cruising on SS Sir Walter Scott provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to share the authors passion for this scenic jewel in the heart of Scotland. When she entered service in 1900, this elegant little steamer - measuring 110 feet by 19 feet beam and weighing 110 tons - was not particularly unusual, with many inland lochs offering similar pleasure sailings. Sir Walter Scott began life at William Denny & Brothers in Dumbarton, but was not launched from the shipyard. She was taken instead in knocked-down form by barge up Loch Lomond, then overland by horse-drawn carts to Loch Katrine for re-assembly. Now, she is unique as the only surviving screw-ste.........

RMS Titanic - A Day to Remember by Gordon Bauwens.


RMS Titanic - A Day to Remember by Gordon Bauwens.

Second in the trio of superliners planned to eclipse their competition on the lucrative north Atlantic route, Titanic was launched from Harland & Wolffs Belfast shipyard on 31st My 1911. Timed to coincide with her sister ship Olympics departure, White Star achieved the desired publicity with around 100,000 witnessing the grand occasion. Designed for luxury rather than speed, Titanic cost around 1.5 million pounds, and was undoubtedly one of the most elegant liners built during the golden era of sea travel. Postponed for 24 hours due to high winds, her builders trials took place on 2 April 1912. Tugs arrived around 6am to ease the massive hulk through the Victorian Channel and out to Belfast Lough where Titanic could proceed for the first time under her own power. Signal burgee A hoisted, the liner then underwent rigorous and carefully measured tests within the Lough until, in the early afternoon, she turned her bow towards the open Irish Sea for running trials. Steaming south for two .........

Aquitania - The Ship Beautiful by Gordon Bauwens.


Aquitania - The Ship Beautiful by Gordon Bauwens.

December 1909 saw Cunards directors authorise a new liner to operate in union with Mauretania and Lusitania, offering a three-ship weekly transatlantic express service - a long held Company dream. Among the details, they specified that the new vessel should be constructed of the very best materials, finished complete in a first class style of workmanship to the entire satisfaction of the owners. In Aquitania, John Browns Clydebank shipyard surpassed Cunards criteria by creating what many have described as the most beautiful four funnelled liner ever built. Known throughout most of her long and successful career as the Ship Beautiful, she was in a class of her own. The combination of almost perfect external proportions along with spectacular interiors, endeared her to all. Sea going manners were equally impeccable with her captain on the maiden voyage exclaiming, her steadiness and lack of vibration are phenomenal. During Aquitanias career of almost 36 years, she carried a total of 1.2.........

River Portraits, the Liner Sylvania by Gordon Bauwens.


River Portraits, the Liner Sylvania by Gordon Bauwens.

Cunard added four new liners to their passenger fleet during the 1950s. All were built by John Brown & Co Ltd, Clydebank, for the St Lawrence route to Quebec City and Montreal, Canada. Fourth in this quartet of sisterships, which included Saxonia, Ivernia and Carinthia, Sylvania was also the last ever Cunarder designed exclusively for North Atlantic trade. Launched in November 1956, she entered service the following summer with Liverpool and Greenock her UK ports. Sylvania maintained a reliable and regular service on her Canadian route until 1961 before transferring to the New York run as replacement for the ex-White Star motorship, Britannic. In 1965 she began a new role in Mediterranean cruising, initially sailing from Liverpool then Gibraltar. Two years later she emerged from a refit with white hull and her own hovercraft. As with her sisters, Sylvanias primary transatlantic career had been all too quickly overtaken by jet air travel, inevitably leading to her sale by Cunard in 1968.........

The Grandeur of the Queens by Gordon Bauwens.


The Grandeur of the Queens by Gordon Bauwens.

On 13 January 2008, a unique event in maritime history took place when Cunard's three magnificent Queens met in New York Harbor for the first and last time. The legendary Queen Elizabeth 2 led the regal procession under the Verrazano Bridge during her final world cruise. QE2 had also just enjoyed a combined transatlantic crossing with her brand new fleetmate, Queen Victoria, on the first leg of her own maiden world cruise. As the pair approached the entrance to the Hudson, they were joined by the mighty Cunard flagship, Queen Mary 2, to make a grand entrance the likes of which Lady Liberty will never see again. In life, the majestic trio arrived and left in darkness. Artist Gordon Bauwens, whose work hangs aboard all three Cunard Queens, was commissioned to portray the event as many would have preferred, with the liners dramatically bathed in early morning sun.

Reflections by Gordon Bauwens.


Reflections by Gordon Bauwens.

At Waverleys launch on a misty October morning in 1946, few could have conceived that she was destined to proudly bear the title of the worlds last sea-going paddle steamer. Even in 1974, when sold to the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society for the nominal fee of 1 pound, most were grateful that Waverley was saved from the breakers, albeit as a static museum piece. Some enthusiasts with a greater vision, however, realised her true potential, and now, over two decades later, the steamers fine lines are familiar, not only her native Clyde waters, but right round the British coastline and beyond. When built, the vessel was just one of many powered by triple expansion steam engines. The powerful, thrusting pistons and immense driving cranks became compulsive viewing for succeeding generations of Clydesiders on their annual trips doon the watter. Today, Waverley is the only vessel of her class still offering this thrilling experience. PS Waverley continues to inspire feelings of pride and .........

QE2 - Transatlantic Arrival by Gordon Bauwens.


QE2 - Transatlantic Arrival by Gordon Bauwens.

Few waterfronts in the world are as instantly recognisable and admired as New York. Cunard first used the port in 1847 and its vast liners became almost as much a part of the Citys image as its famous skyline thereafter. Transatlantic legends bearing immortal names such as Lusitania, Mauretania, Aquitania, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth all graced this famous waterfront. And now, having already sailed well over four million miles since her own maiden arrival, QE2 still proudly bears the Cunard insignia into New York harbour, looking more majestic with each passing year. The magnificent liner is enjoying a traditional fireboat welcome while being met by Moran tugs. Manhattans twin towers and the distant Statue of Liberty shimmer in the early evening sun as overhead, Concorde banks to give her passengers a glimpse of the spectacular panorama below. It is apt that his fine portrait of the last Clyde-built Cunarder is by an artist whose charted her growth from steel skeleton into elegant.........

Welcome Home QE2 by Gordon Bauwens.


Welcome Home QE2 by Gordon Bauwens.

Featuring Queen Elizabeth 2 on her first homecoming to the river where she began her illustrious career, this painting captures the supreme elegance of the liner in the beautiful Firth of Clyde. As a backdrop, Hunters Quay and Dunoon nestle beneath the hazy blue hills of the Cowal peninsula, enjoying this brief reminder of when the river was one of Britains busiest shipping thoroughfares. In over 250 years of shipbuilding on the Clyde some 35,000 new vessels witnessed this lovely vista. The occasion which brought about QE2s only appearance on these waters for over 20 years was Cunards 150th Anniversary celebrations in 1990. Four years later the mighty QE2 again returned to the Clyde as part of her Silver Jubilee cruise programme. At the end of a memorable day, with the sun glistening off her giant hull and superstructure, the majestic Queen glided past those same blue hills.
