Royal William, Lying at her Anchorage

The full name of this sumptuous work by Samuel Scott – A large first rate, though to the Royal William (formerly the Prince), lying at her anchorage, surrounded by other vessels and preparing to receive a distinguished – possibly royal – visitor – more than adequately explains the scene unfolding in this beautiful depiction of naval history. Scott was one of only two principal marine painters of his time and completed frequent commissions from the East India Company and Admiral Vernon, alongside a large body of naval warfare works. Ironically he also suffered severe sea-sickness and so ventured on very few sea voyages himself.
