Welcome Home QE2 by Gordon Bauwens.


Welcome Home QE2 by Gordon Bauwens.

Featuring Queen Elizabeth 2 on her first homecoming to the river where she began her illustrious career, this painting captures the supreme elegance of the liner in the beautiful Firth of Clyde. As a backdrop, Hunters Quay and Dunoon nestle beneath the hazy blue hills of the Cowal peninsula, enjoying this brief reminder of when the river was one of Britains busiest shipping thoroughfares. In over 250 years of shipbuilding on the Clyde some 35,000 new vessels witnessed this lovely vista. The occasion which brought about QE2s only appearance on these waters for over 20 years was Cunards 150th Anniversary celebrations in 1990. Four years later the mighty QE2 again returned to the Clyde as part of her Silver Jubilee cruise programme. At the end of a memorable day, with the sun glistening off her giant hull and superstructure, the majestic Queen glided past those same blue hills.
