This is the original Pen & Ink Wash by John S Smith.

The Normandie was destroyed by tragic misfortune and a careless welder's torch while she was in dock in New York. The Normandie was a ocean liner and when she was built she was the largest and fastest passenger ship afloat.

She was later commandeered by the US military during World War II and whilst being converted into a troop carrier, she caught fire and capsized.

This is the original artwork from Look and Learn no. 749 (22 May 1976).
