A curiously proportioned painting showing the ‘Great Britain’. She was the world's first iron hulled, screw propeller-driven, steam-powered passenger liner. The ship was built at the Great Western Dockyard, Bristol, by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his colleagues Thomas Guppy, Christopher Claxton and William Patterson, all members of the Great Western Steamship Company. When launched in 1843 she was twice the tonnage of any previous ship.
