Night, A Ship on Fire
Coloured aquatint. 190 x 280mm, 7½ x 11". Creased.
A moon-lit scene of a warship ablaze, with a longboat escaping with the crew. Transparency prints were swiftly produced for instant appeal and many don't survive as they were often used in scrap ablums or even folded and carried for amusement. The background of this particular print shows a mountain fortified harbour which could easily be a representation of Gibraltar.
