A cutter and a man-of-war off Corsica, 1788
The early part of Pocock's career was spent commanding ships belonging to Richard Champion who was afterwards the first producer of Bristol porcelain. He sometimes illustrated the ships' logs with drawings, including that of the 'Betsey', which he took to the Mediterranean in 1770. During the 1770s he decided to become a professional artist and began exhibiting marines and landscapes at the Royal Academy in 1782. He received support from Joshua Reynolds who advised him to 'unite landscape to ship painting' which he successfully does in this watercolour.
