Earl Howe's Decisive Victory Over the Grand French Fleet on the 1st of June 1794.
Earl Howe's Decisive Victory Over the Grand French Fleet on the 1st of June 1794.
Drawn by J. Morris late of the Navy with the assistance of a Naval Officer on board the Brunswick.
[n.d., c.1800.]
Watercolour ink and wash, 18th century watermarked paper, unique. Sheet 430 x 650mm (17 x 25½"). Wear to edges, two tears, crease through middle.
A naïve illustration of the Third Battle of Ushant (The Glorious First of June), in which the British navy sank or captured seven French ships but failed to stop a vital convoy of supplies reaching France. Keys name the ships and give statistics for each fleet. It appears that this is an original work: we have been unable to trace a published source.
Provenance: Hermitage Hexham.
