Portrait of the 'Mordaunt'
Portrait of the 'Mordaunt', viewed from close under the port quarter. The ship was fourth-rate of 46-guns, built privately for Lord Mordaunt in 1681, and purchased for the Navy in 1683. It was wrecked in 1693. On the broadside the drawing shows ten guns each on the gun deck and upper deck, and five on the quarter deck. There is a small royal arms on the stern between two stern galleries, with St George's crosses below the tafferel, as well as above and on the lower gallery rail. There are three stern lanterns on the tafferel. The lower masts and an ensign on a staff, blowing forward, are lightly sketched in pencil. Two figures are depicted on the lower gallery and one looking out of an upper gallery window.
