Laurence Dunn (1907-2006) was a marine artist. Growing up in Devon, England he enjoyed creating line drawings of passing ships.
He studied at London's Central School of Art. After, he worked for the Orient Line then Thorneycroft, where he helped design new royal yacht.
In the second world he worked for naval intelligence, drawing ships to help recognise them.
In the early 1960s he created meticulous line drawings of Atlantic ocean liners, published as lithographs. These were the crème de la creme of passenger ships. In the early 1900s they dominated travel between continents. Shipping companies competed to create the most impressive and fast ocean liners. Eventually air travel took over.
Here are some of the lithographs of magnificent ocean liners for you to choose from. They are genuine vintage prints, made in 1961.
