S.S. EMBIRICOS Off Dover

MOHRMANN, John Henry (1857 - 1916)

S.S. EMBIRICOS Off Dover

Date: 1896

Media: oil on canvas

Size: 790 x 1180 mm

Acquired: 1994; Gift

Accession Number: 1994.143/2

The Embiricos was completed in 1893 by Sir Raylton Dixon of Middlesborough for Alcibiades Embiricos of Andros, Greece. In 1896, another member of the family, Stamatios, came to Cardiff, and he often ‘fixed’ the Embiricos to load a cargo at the booming coal port. In this picture, however, the vessel is seen in the Straits of Dover, probably bound for Dunkirk with a cargo of grain from a Black Sea port.
