Engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel stands in front of the ship's chains The Great Eastern which he has designed. The photograph was taken in 1857 and is a depiction of the engineer as a hero. Isambard was behind large parts of the industrial revolution in England in the middle of the 1800th century and was known for his magnificent constructions as well as his personality. The Great Eastern was the crown of his work, the great pride of the nation, and by far the largest ship ever built at this time.
Isambard was a man of humble demeanor and strength but with an extremely nervous energy. He was never seen without a cigar in the corner of his mouth and a cigar box hanging in a brace over his back. He was known for his determination and was not afraid to get involved in all aspects of a job. Something that can be seen on his dirty suit pants.

Very happy with my paintings. As the finishing touch. Really good quality. Affordable. / Maria
Like the slightly different motifs, and the stories behind the picture.
Highest quality pool both print and packaging, in addition there is a lot to choose from.
Found a motif I was fond of, but not in the usual gallery of historical lights, they contacted the rights holder. I just needed to choose the size, and if the motif would be horizontal or vertical and then there was to pick up at the postman. Sickly smooth and nice to know that everything went right, it also turned out nice with the frame I bought from them.
Nice picture, fast delivery, very satisfied

To my delight, I see that you have a large selection of John Bauer's pictures. I remember them clearly from my childhood and now I want to give my grandchildren the same experience.
