Lot 542: Transatlantique / Paquebot "Paris." 1939

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $3,000

Description: Artist: ALBERT SEBILLE (1874-1953) Size: 28 3/4 x 40 5/8 in./73 x 103 cm Maquet, Paris Although presented with a haunting beauty in this poster, the Paris was not the luckiest of ships. Begun in 1914, she did not make her maiden voyage until 1920 due to the War. Six years later, she sank a tugboat in Le Havre. In 1929, her interior was ravaged by fire, and in 1939, on the eve of sailing for New York, another fire broke out in her bakery, the water used to combat it ultimately causing her to sink.

Condition Report: B+/ Recreated margin; slight tears at folds.

Transatlantique-French Line / Paris-Havre-New York. 1922

Lot 543: Transatlantique-French Line / Paris-Havre-New York. 1922

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $2,000

Description: Artist: ALBERT SEBILLE (1874-1953) Size: 42 x 31 1/4 in./106.3 x 79.3 cm Imp. F. Champenois, Paris Sebille's images for French Line are some of the best ever done; not least, this tremendous view of the France at the doorstep of Le Havre as she weighs anchor for New York. The 24,000-ton France--not to be confused with the second France, launched in 1960--was completed in 1912, making her maiden crossing in 5 days, 17 hours. She was the most luxurious French liner of her day, and the only four-stacker. During World War I she served as a hospital.

Condition Report: B/ Slight tears at folds.

Transatlantique / Hâvre, Plymouth, New-York. 1922

Lot 544: Transatlantique / Hâvre, Plymouth, New-York. 1922

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $3,000

Description: Artist: ALBERT SEBILLE (1874-1953) Size: 24 3/4 x 39 1/4 in./62.8 x 99.8 cm Imp. Crété, Paris Sebille was a successful and prolific maritime artist, many of whose paintings adorned the staterooms of French Line ships. His travel posters for the company are some of the best ever done; not least is this tremendous view overlooking New York harbor as the latest boat arrives from Plymouth. This highly unusual perspective, as well as the fanciful coloring, distinguishes this design from the majority in circulation at the time. This is the larger format.

Condition Report: A.
