Description: FRED PANSING (1854-1912) CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY CO'S / ROYAL MAIL ROUTE TO JAPAN AND CHINA. Circa 1890s.
25x39 inches, 63 1/2x99 cm.
Condition B+: repaired tears, creases and overpainting in margins and image. Matted and framed in an original, company-issued wooden frame.
One year after her launch in 1890, "the Empress of Japan began to navigate under the new red-and-white-chequered Canadian Pacific flag [visible here]" (Canadian Pacific p. 66). German-born Pansing went to sea as a young man and upon his return began painting marine scenes. He painted ship portraits for the Cunard and White Star lines, as well as other shipping companies, and these in turn were issued by the companies as lithographs to be displayed in ticket offices.
