John (Jack) Stark Adamson. (1920 – 1992) Marine Artist & Master Mariner
Jack’s paintings encompassed a broad range of subjects from seascapes, landscapes, portraits and still life during his lifetime, but his main passion was the sea and the tall ships that sailed on them.
Working tall ships hauling jute, tea and wool, clipper ships, general traders, barquentines, with names like Old Kensington, Collingwood, British Merchant, Ariel, Salamis, Oberon, Thessalus and Garfield. A few of these sailing ships retired gracefully but most met tragedy at sea or at home. Weather, marine hazards, fire and war among other fates happened often to these magnificent tall ships.
The tall ship gallery you are about to view will also give you a little general history about each tall ship including dimensions, general cargo carried and any known facts about the fate of the vessel. Learn a little maritime history and experience an age of peril and adventure which, like so many things of the past, have almost disappeared into obscurity.
Enjoy the site and please take a minute to read about the artist.
