Atlantic Dawn (Queen Elizabeth) by John Steven Dews, signed by the artist, 1979 

Stunning signed print from a limited edition of 250 (compromised, see below) by John Steven Dews. The Queen Elizabeth was the worlds largest passenger liner at 1031 feet and a tonnage of 83,673. Launched on Clydside in September 1938 she spent her first years as a transport ship in the second world war. It was not until 1947 that Cunard put her into the service for which she was designed. Sadly she sank in Hong Kong Harbour at the end of her cruising days.
 
John Steven Dews was born in Yorkshire in 1949 and has become one of the country's leading maritime artists with his last oil painting selling for £120,000. His prints are well sought after and avidly collected worldwide. This picture was part of the Amoco Heritage Collection of twelve marine paintings produced in 1979. They were limited to 250, all signed and numbered by the artist. Unfortunately they have subsequently been reproduced, not signed or numbered, but compromising the original limited edition. Without this the picture would fetch between £150-£250. These pictures with the original numbering and pencil signature are still highly collectable and offered at a once only price.
