In November 2021, a major donation of unique maritime artworks was gifted to Crawford Art Gallery by The Port of Cork Company.

This significant collection consists of 17 maritime paintings, a ship’s register (1912) from The Cork Harbour Commissioners referencing both the Titanic and Lusitania, an illuminated address to Charles Stewart Parnell (1846-1891), and a silver Admiralty Oar from 1686.

Now visitors will have the opportunity to encounter a selection of paintings from the Port of Cork collection, including works by George Mounsey Wheatley Atkinson (1806-1884), Henry Albert Hartland (1840-1893), Robert Lowe Stopford (1813-1898), and Seán Keating (1889-1977).

Take in panoramic views of Cork Harbour from the late nineteenth century, turn back the clock on locations ranging from Cobh (Queenstown) and Monkstown to Blackrock Castle, and learn of the variety of seagoing vessels, including the famed SS Sirius.
