Captain William Rogers capturing the 'Jeune Richard', 1October 1807
The artist intended this painting to commemorate a 'very gallant action in the West Indies' on 1 October 1807. At dawn, off the coast of Barbados, a lookout aboard the 'Windsor Castle', mail packet, saw the sail of a French privateer the 'Jeune Richard', overhauling them. The scene is viewed from the 'Jeune Richard's' starboard main shrouds. In the centre of the painting Captain Rogers has boarded the privateer with his five remaining men and stands on the deck preparing to shoot the boatswain.
