This painting of a steamship formerly hung in the 'mahogany corridor' at Vickers. 'Chusan' was launched in 1949 for the P&O Steam Navigation Company and was the first large passenger ship to be fitted with stabilisers which made the journey more comfortable for passengers. The artist was the principal artist used by the shipyard from the late 1940s until his retirement in the early 1980s. He provided impressions of both projected and implemented ship designs as a means of promoting the Yard and selling potential orders.
