Queen Mary 2, Maiden Sunrise
In this painting, Queen Mary 2, Maiden Sunrise, this magnificent vessel is portrayed on the first sunrise of her maiden voyage. Having departed Southampton the evening before, she is now headed towards the Portuguese Island of Madeira, the newly rising sun bathing her in gold.
Launched in 2003, towering over 200 feet from the waterline, this colossal liner is one of the largest in the world. Faithfully following the Cunard tradition, RMS Queen Mary 2 is a worthy successor to many famous names of the past: RMS Queen Mary, RMS Queen Elizabeth, RMS Queen Elizabeth 2, RMS Aquitania, and RMS Mauretania, just to name a few.
