Description
A fine coloured aquatint entitled "Sir Richard Strachan's Action Nov 4th 1805" from the volume "The Naval Achievements of Great Britain from the year 1793-1817" published by James Jenkins of The Strand, London in 1817. Roger Quarm the curator of pictures at the National Maritime Museum has said of this work "As a record of naval events spanning a period of over twenty years it has no precedent. At no time prior to 1817 had a publisher attempted such a complete volume of documentary naval prints. It is the quality of accuracy which makes Jenkins so valuable". The published volume offered 55 aquatint illustrations after paintings by T Whitcombe. Most engravings were by T Sutherland, but others were done by Jeakes (as in this example) and Bailey. The naval action commemorated here became known as the Battle of Cape Ortegal. Whilst sailing off Cape Finisterre, Strachan encountered four French ships of the line that had escaped from the Battle of Trafalgar. Strachan pursued them, and captured all of them, completing the destruction of the French fleet.
