A large and dramatic evocation of the bow of the 'Cutty Sark', showing a carved figurehead. In this highly stylized painting the ship is shown moving through the waves at sunset. The 'Cutty Sark' was one of the most famous merchant sailing ships of the 19th century. 'Cutty Sark' was designed by Hercules Linton and built by Scott and Linton at Dumbarton but was later rigged and finished for sea by Denny Brothers of Greenock in 1869. Measuring 212 feet in length by 36 feet in the beam and a tonnage of 963 gross, it was composite built, that is, wooden planks on iron frames.
