Object ID BHC1831
Description An architecturally inept view by Ouless, a Channel Islands marine painter, in which the figures are also out of proportion to the very inaccurately rendered buildings of the Hospital - possibly derived from one or more much older prints, since the waterfront step arrangements shown never existed. The shipping is better, with a hay barge and an inward-bound Boulogne packet on the left, a brig on the right and other craft. The Greenwich Hospital 'model' drill-ship 'Fame' is shown in front of the Queen's House, then the centre of the School.
Date made 1852?
