The story behind the painting...


Le tableau dépeint le naufrage du paquebot anglais Lusitania le 7 mai 1915, près de la côte d'Irlande, alors qu'il vient d'être torpillé par le sous-marin allemand U 20 que l'on voit faire surface au premier plan.

Le Lusitania, en provenance de New-York, coulera en 15 minutes, provoquant la mort de nombreux passagers.

L'évènement toucha fortement l'opinion américaine et pesa dans la décision des USA d'entrer dans la première guerre mondiale.
