French ironclad in collision
This slightly primitive gouache depicting English ships off Bastia has a painted frame and provincial decorative Louis XVI style border. It might have served as a high-class 'souvenir' commissioned by a visiting ship's master or a naval officer in the 1794-1796 period. The view shows the harbour and old Bastia, with the British flag flying from the Governor's Palace, much as it remains today. The more modern town and harbour area lie further the right (north).
