A brigantine in a calm sea
An 18th century Royal Naval brigantine, flying the red ensign, a Union jack at the bow and the pendant of a ship on independent command. It is off the coast, which can be seen on the far left. The ship is a two-masted, square-rigged 10-gun sloop of war in port-broadside view, with a figurehead at the bow. The mainmast carries a lateen driver, furled to the lowered lateen yard. To the left, three officials are being rowed out to the ship, where men on deck prepare to meet them.
