Kenneth King Paintings

Irish Shipping commissioned Kenneth King, the noted marine artist to paint pictures of their fleet.  After the demise of Irish Shipping these were auctioned by the liquidator.  The Maritime Institute of Ireland acquired some at the auction.  Later the institute commissioned Kenneth to paint pictures of other Irish ships which were lost during World War Two.  A selection of these paintings can be seen on St Columbia’s Chapel, a side-chapel in Mariners’ Church.  For further information on a ship, clip on its image:
