About

William John Patton McDowell (British, 1888-1950) ‘R.M.S Queen Mary, Cunard White Star’. A monumental, original oil on canvas of R.M.S Queen Mary, painted in 1936 and commissioned by her owners, Cunard White Star Line. Signed by the artist, lower right and framed with a lacquered stepped Art Deco style frame, with a yellow gold slip, and unglazed. William McDowell started his career in the drawing office of the Vickers Shipyard in Barrow-in-Furness, and after World War I became a full-time commercial artist, commissioned by large companies such as Cunard to create paintings and illustrations to publicize their shipping lines. McDowell’s work is held in a number of public maritime art collections including the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, and he was an associate member of the Institute of Naval Architects. His book ‘The Shape of Ships’ first published in 1950, chronicled the earliest ships through to present day and included a large number of McDowell’s illustrations.
