HMS Britannia in Two Positions | Isaac Sailmaker | 1695

Regular price £20.00

Taxes included

Size: 12"x8"

The HMS Britannia is shown in two positions. The broadside view agrees very closely with the drawing by Van de Velde the Elder, probably made in 1685, butt the drawing Sailmaker used for the stern view is not known. The flags in Sailmaker's paintings are later than those in the drawing. The anchor in the admiralty flag is horizontal, a form used after 1688, and the Royal Standard has William III's inescutcheon in the centre. M.S. Robinson dates this design from 1695, after Mary's death, until 1702 when William III died.
