I would like to congrautlate on your Internet page with excellent ship depictions. I only wish the pictures would have a higher resolution to enjoy them better.

Regarding the depiction of the SS W. I. RADCLIFFE I am sure it was made by one of the Luzzo family from Venice. In particular, I think it was made by Antonio Luzzo (Venice-Genoa 1855-1907). He has some similar paintings of ships in storm. In the painitng of the Brtitish tree mast schooner JANIGOUCH the redemption of the waves is very similar. (I can send a copy if you like).

I am researching Austrian and Austro-Hungarian sailing vessels, and I was looking for a depiction of the full rigged ship ISLE OF ANGLESEY (1872) which later became the Austro-Hungarian bark DRINA. I came upon your page because of the depiction of the SS ISLE OF ANGLESEY. This is of course an other vessel, a steamship. I would still be grateful if you could send me higher resolution copy on it or, eventually, on the sailing vesssel ISLE OF ANGLESEY if you konw of any.

With compliments
