A shipping scene with a good view of the Rio de Janeiro harbour. The maritime painter Sir Oswald Walters Brierly (1817-1894) travelled with Sir Henry Keppel on the Maeander in 1850, and provided the illustrations for Keppel's record of the journey published in 1853. Born in Chester, Brierly studied naval architecture at Plymouth and studied briefly at Sass's art school, London. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1839 and spent most of his life travelling the world by sea and illustrating his voyages.
