About Ocean Liners: Speed and Style

Ocean Liners: Speed & Style will showcase over 250 objects, including paintings, sculpture, and ship models alongside objects from shipyards, wall panels, furniture, fashion, textiles, photographs, posters and film It will display objects never-before-seen in Europe, and reunite objects not seen together since on board these spectacular vessels, which revolutionised ocean travel from the mid-19th century to the late 20th century.

Highlights include a precious Cartier Tiara recovered from the sinking Lusitania in 1915 as well as a panel fragment from the Titanic’s first class lounge, returning to the UK for the first time since its doomed maiden voyage in 1912.

Ocean Liners: Speed & Style will reveal the largely forgotten history of leading artists and designers who contributed to their design, such as William De Morgan, Richard Riemerschmid, Jean Dunand, Edward Bawden and Edward Ardizzone. It will also highlight the political shifts and the international rivalry that developed over 100 years, as liners became floating showcases of national ingenuity.
