TITANIC - LAST FAREWELL
by Robert Taylor
It was a bitterly cold, crystal clear night and the sea was flat and
calm. In the crow’s nest of RMS Titanic, four days out from Southampton,
two vigilant lookouts shivered, the warmth of their breath steaming in
the freezing air. Then, at 11.40pm, they saw it dead ahead – an
iceberg. With adrenaline pumping through their veins they rang the warning
bell and hailed the bridge, but it was too late. The lookouts could only
stare in horror as the ship’s starboard side struck the deadly ice.
A few days earlier, however, the scene had been so different. The RMS Titanic presented a majestic sight as she sailed down Southampton Water and into the Solent accompanied by a flotilla of all shapes and sizes. It is this magical moment that Robert Taylor has chosen to commit to canvas.
His latest painting, Titanic – Last Farewell, is dedicated to the memory and the Centenary of the Titanic’s fateful voyage.
