A packet off Liverpool
An early work by the artist painted when he was living and working in Liverpool. It is set in the Mersey with the buildings of Liverpool carefully delineated in the distance. The small 24-gun ship in the foreground is shown in broadside port-bow view, making sail, and again in port and stern view in the distance on the right. Liverpool, like Bristol, came to prominence as an 18th century slaving and sugar port but overtook this earlier rival as northern industrialization made it one of the main beneficiaries of expanding international markets for British manufactured goods.
