About this Item

Colour-printed aquatint, finished by hand, by C. Rosenberg after Huggins. A fine image of Lord Yarborough's `new' yacht William Huggins, one of the best English marine artists of the 19th century, served for several years at sea in the service of the East India Company. On his return to London used his intimate knowledge of sailing vessels to gain regular employment painting carefully detailed ship portraits. The present image falls into this category and represents the yacht that Lord Yarborough (1781-1846) had built after he was elected the first commodore of the Royal Yacht Squadron in 1824. Huggins' painting was very ably aquatinted by Charles Rosenberg, who translated several Huggins ship paintings to print. This is a superb example of 19th century marine printmaking.
