RMS Titanic was constructed by the White Star Line of England, part of the International Mercantile Marine Company, a huge shipping trust, incorporated in the State of New Jersey in 1902 by J.P. Morgan of the U.S. RMS Titanic was one of three sister ships built by Harland & Wolff in Belfast, Ireland, including the Olympic and Britannic. RMS Titanic cost $7.5 million to construct employing 3,000 men over three years. She had seven decks, weighed 46,328 gross tons, was 882.5 feet long and 92.5 feet wide. The Titanic sank on her maiden voyage from the UK to New York City at 2:20 a.m., April 15, 1912, after striking an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. on April 14. She sank in 2 hours 40 minutes with Captain E.J. Smith and Thomas Andrews, naval architect, going down with the ship. Several millionaires also went down with the ship in order to save the women and children including Col. John Jacob Astor, the wealthiest, worth between $72 and $100 million. There were only 705 survivors of the 2,224 passengers and crew. The RMS Titanic International Artifacts Exhibitions have been on worldwide tour since the shipwreck was discovered by Robert Ballard in 1985 and artifacts were recovered over several years. Edward D. Walker was selected to be the official artist for the RMS Titanic Artifacts Exhibitions.
Walker’s painting shows RMS Titanic passing Bangor on the North Down Coast, Ulster, 2nd April 1912, heading for sea trials in the Irish Sea. This limited edition printing, numbering 1,523, commemorates the number of souls lost, both passengers and crew.
