The Mauretania by Duncan Hannah, 2010

Extinct: Dazzle ships, active WWI. Thought up by
Norman Wilkinson and devised in the basement of the RA,
the designs were overseen by Edward Wadsworth, a Slade
trained Vorticist. Not actually an art movement, it was used
to foil U-Boats in terms of calculating direction and speed.
