Portrait of the English ship 'Charles'
The 'Charles', 96 guns, was built in 1668, renamed 'St George' in 1687, and rebuilt in 1701. This drawing is probably an offset and is worked up in graphite and wash with the exception of the quarter-gallery, of which there is a drawing in the NMM's collection by the Younger dated 1676 (PAF6612). The decks of the ship are crowded with people, but the reason for this is not known.
