Object ID PAD8828
Description A starboard-broadside study of the hull of the 'Victory'. It is so inscribed by the artist, with unexplained figures. The inscription in the bottom right corner '(at Trafalgar – by Pocock)' is much later and by another hand. It simply means that the ship is shown in her Trafalgar state following her rebuild in 1803. Despite the absence of mooring cable, it may be a drawing done while she was laid up in the Medway after the battle. Her lower masts appear to be still in place but there is no sign of standing rigging or bowsprit. PAD8830 is a similar study of the 'Courageux'. Exhibited: NMM Pocock exhib. (1975) no. 102. The paper is noted as bearing a fragmentary cartouche watermark including the date 1802.
Date made circa 1806?
