HMS 'Columbine' and other vessels off Lisbon
A squadron of experimental ships off the Rock of Lisbon, Portugal, with the 'Columbine', 18 guns, shown broadside in full sail. The other ships of the squadron can be seen to the right and left. In the foreground a small lateen-rigged Portuguese coastal craft, apparently of the type known in English as a 'bean cod', is running before the stiff breeze with several figures shown sitting in the stern. At the end of the Napoleonic War in 1815 Britain anticipated an era of peace and stability, and it was this period that Schetky captured in his work.
