Description: This impressive oil on canvas is a portrait of the world’s first liquified natural gas carrier that is powered by a heavy-duty gas turbine which burns boil-off cargo. This massive tanker seems to be adrift in the China Sea. The ships specs, the manufacturer, the artist, and the date are at the lower right: “LNG G/T Lucian 29000 qm Hilmar Reksten Bergen Paul Sverre Lervik 1974″ [tanker inaugural date].

Hilmar Reksten (1897-1980) was a Bergen, Norway shipping magnate.

We found nothing about the career of the very capable Norwegian artist, Paul Lervik.
