Three ship models are to go on display at the McManus Galleries as part of an exhibition that celebrates Dundee’s maritime past.
They form part of an eight-strong collection of ship models and paintings previously owned by the Dundee, Perth & London Shipping Company Ltd (DP&L).
A spokesman for Leisure and Culture Dundee said: “This important collection highlights Dundee’s rich shipbuilding and maritime history as well as its important trading and passenger links.
“It was saved for the city with the help of a number of individuals and organisations.”
The three models will feature in the exhibition, Charting New Water, until October 23.
They were taken from the former DP&L building, located on East Dock Street, prior to its sale, having been made by shipyards to demonstrate their skill and used as a form of marketing for the company.
DP&L was founded in 1826 after the amalgamation of two rival firms who were once in direct competition for the important Dundee to London route.
The exhibition also introduces Frances Walker’s Antarctic Suite – a collection of six impressive paintings, gifted by the artist, that resulted from her voyage to the Antarctic peninsula in 2007.
A rare example of a living bequest, they are considered the most significant gift by an artist to Dundee’s permanent fine art collection for 25 years.
