A ketch approaching the harbour of St Helier in choppy seas. John Le Capelain (1812-48) commemorated the 1846 visit of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert with 'The Queen's Visit to Jersey', which was presented to her as an official souvenir by the States of Jersey. This led the Queen to commission Le Capelain to paint the Isle of Wight, but on the island he developed tuberculosis, dying on Jersey in 1848..
