Description: HARRY HUDSON RODMELL (1896-1984) SWEDISH AMERICAN LINE / GOTHENBURG - NEW YORK. Circa 1928.
40x25 inches, 101 1/2x63 1/2 cm. Ronald Massey, London.
Condition A: slight darkening along left edge.
Rodmell enrolled into the Hull School of Art in 1912 and that same year designed his first magazine cover. More than just a maritime artist, he was also a very active commercial designer. In addition to his paintings, his artistic legacy is filled with magazine covers, posters, calendars and tide tables. "His work for the ocean liner industry was prodigious and his images graced the posters of more than sixty-five companies" (Rodmell p. 20). These included Canadian Pacific, French Line, Swedish Lloyd, Shaw-Saville and Albion Line, General Steam Navigation Co., Royal Holland Lloyd, and Norddeutscher Lloyd Bremen. The Kungsholm was launched in 1928, and shortly afterwards the Swedish American Line painted the hulls of all their vessels white. Likely the second ship is the Gripsholm, launched in 1925, which also plied the Gothenburg-Copenhagen-New York route.
