George Mears (1860-1895 fl.)
Return to Collection  :: Return to Steam Ships  

George Mears was a painter of ship portraits, who flourished during the late 19th century; specializing in steam and sail ships. His seascapes are well handled, but the true importance of these paintings lies in the accurate portrayal of the ships details. His immense talent enabled him to secure employment as the official ships portrait painter to the then major cross-channel shipping company, The Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company; painting all the company's cross-channel ships during his employ.
