  • Description

    Painting of RMS Mauretania (31,938 tons, 790' loa), which served the Cunard Line from 1907-1935. She is depicted here in WWI dazzle paint, designed to disguise the true course and speed of the ship from lurking U-boats. Her sister ship, the Lusitania, was of course sunk with heavy loss of life by a German submarine in 1915. In the foreground are the depth charge racks of an escorting destroyer. The painting is in the National Museum of American History's On the Water exhibit.
