Scott Houston McBee

I stumbled across the work of Scott Houston McBee while reading the article on James Andrew on NYSD today. He has a huge, gorgeous, whimsical painting of an ostrich in his foyer that caught my attention immediately! I did a quick search and found his new collection of ocean liner paintings:


RMS Queen Elizabeth

SS Normandie

SS Michelangelo

SS Ile de France

SS Conte di Savoia

SS Queen of Bermuda

I can’t pick a favorite, I love them all! They would be wonderful as a series, but could also stand alone.

And, as you can see, they are really quite large.

These would be perfect for an office of someone who had a particularly affinity for or interest in ships like this, or as a more modern interpretation of ye olde painting of a galley hanging over the fireplace.

Here are some others from the extensive collection:

Caronia

Rotterdam

Empress of Britain

Rafaello

SS United States

Leviathan

A similar look could be achieved by framing vintage ocean liner posters, such as this one:

Travel used to be so much more glamorous. sigh.
