Description

Artist: ERIK NITSCHE (1908-1998) Size: 35 1/2 x 50 1/4 in./90.2 x 127.5 cm R. Marsens, Lausanne The world’s first nuclear powered submarine, the USS Nautilus was built by General Dynamics in Connecticut, being christened on January 21, 1954. It would go on to be the first vessel to traverse the North Pole under water, as well as breaking a host of other records. This is the most famous image from Nitsche’s first series for the company, showing the Nautilus submarine being ‘birthed’ from a nautilus shell. Such a organic association with the ship allowed it to be seen as a body of progress rather than as the world’s foremost powerful war machine.
