This is the Signed original Gouache painting by John S Smith.

Challenge of the Blue Riband: The Duel That Led to Disaster. E K Collins' wife and children were among those who drown when the ship Arctic sank after a collision with a French steamer in 1854. The smaller French steamer made it safely to port but The Arctic, though appearing only superficially damaged later sank.

It proved to have too few lifeboats for the number of passengers and of the 391 passengers and crew only 45 survived. This is the original artwork from Look and Learn no. 857 (17 June 1978).
