A view of a Dutch fort taken from the Pallas whe[n] passing it supposed to be Artez [Anzer] [Bray album]
No. 46 of 74 (PAJ1976 - PAJ2049). Titled and dated as above, and signed and dated 'AVprGB Mar 75' (to the life by Gabriel Bray) on the backing sheet. It also bears the watercolour inscription in the image 'NW 1/2 W 6 Miles' (i.e. north-west and half a point west). The scene is probably what the log of the 'Pallas' calls the Dutch fort of Anzer, one of at least three between Cape Appollonia and Cape Coast Castle. The 'Pallas passed it to seaward on 19 March 1775. It was presumably a Dutch trading (and slaving) station. This is one of 73 drawings by Bray (plus one signed 'NF 1782') preserved in a 19th century album that was purchased for the Museum by the Macpherson Fund of the Society for Nautical Research in April 1991. They have now been separately remounted. Bray (1750-1823), was second lieutenant of the 44-gun 'Pallas' under Captain the Hon. William Cornwallis (1744-1819)
