Design for the east end of the ceiling of the Painted Hall
While there are differences in detail from the finally executed version, this drawing is very close to it in overall conception. The stern of the British warship here is slightly turned to the left, whereas it is square-on in the ceiling. The shield and figure of London, with Father Thames, are clearly seen below it. As finally executed, the rainbow shape on the right became a shaft of light.
