This oil painting of Bath Iron Works by Carroll Thayer Berry shows the construction of two large naval vessels in the shipyard.

Carroll T. Berry (1886-1978) was born in New Gloucester, Maine and later became a well known figure of Rockport, Maine. He received an engineering degree from the University of Michigan, but then returned to New England to pursue education in fine arts. Eventually he was drawn back to the sea, and to Maine, where he was the only artist permitted to paint Bath Iron Works during World War II.
