New York, NY, USALive Auction
Description: Artist: GINO BOCCASILE (1901-1952) Size: 23 3/4 x 38 in./63 x 96.3 cm Pizzi & Pizio, Milano This clever 1930 image departs from one convention in order to establish another. While entire fleets of great cruise-liners in the 1920s were depicted as triumphs of technology and presence, SS Romolo is but a slim line on the horizon, overpowered by the natural strength of an Australian ram. No longer is the journey the destination, in Lloyd Triestino's framing; nature is what we've come to see. (ship)
