Annotated drawing of 'Larkin's East Indiaman, April 27th (Thursday) 1843'
Mounted in album with PAH3772-PAH3775, PAH3777-PAH3801. No. 5 of 30. If the inscription on PAH3777 is correctly read, Schetky made drawings of the Larkins in the East India Docks. Schetky urged his students to draw everything and to annotate their drawings 'No doubt you are sketching every day. Now I advise you to make minute studies of every kind of boat â”œÂ½Ã”Ã»Ãª_, and draw the inside of them as well as sheer and shape - ay, the inside, with all the gear you see in them - nets, crab pots, spars, casks, sails, and everything, most carefully, marking the colours of each, and depend upon it you will find the good of it hereafter.' Annotated with details of the rigging and inscribed and dated upper right 'Larkins East Indiaman-/ April 27th (Thursday) 1843'
John Christian Schetky (1778-1874)
