It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between the work of the Plymouth marine painters Nicholas Condy (1793-1857) and his son Nicholas Matthew Condy (1818-51). However, the elder is known for his small colourful watercolours painted on tinted paper often with body-colour, as in this example. It is likely that the vessel depicted belongs to the Royal Yacht Squadron. Condy first served in the Peninsular, but retired on half pay as a lieutenant in 1818 and became a professional artist in Plymouth, occasionally exhibiting at the Royal Academy and the British Institution between 1830 and 1845. The drawing is signed twice, with initials as well as with the artist's name.
