This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Peter Jackson.

In 1853 the Eastern Steam Navigation Company employed Brunel to build the Great Eastern. The huge ship (originally dubbed the ‘Leviathan’) was designed to carry 4,000 passengers and was technologically way ahead of her time. But this led to a series of engineering problems and the strain of the work took its toll on Brunel’s health.

He died on 15 September 1859, aged 53, following news of an explosion on board the Great Eastern during her sea trials. Five days later Isambard Kingdom Brunel was buried in Kensal Green Cemetery in London. The ship was never a commercial success suffering several accidents and bankrupting more than one company in the process.
