Study of HMS 'Queen' at Malta, 3 March 1852
Inscribed top left, 'Queen / March 3rd 52/ from Stern Port of Trafalgar / bearing the Flag of Sir W. Parker'. This is a hull study of the ship moored in Grand Harbour, Malta, not quite finished as far as the watercolour goes and with masts and rigging only done lightly in pencil. There is no setting shown but the location is clear from the date and the fact that one of the two boats alongside is a Maltese dghaisa. The ship was a 110-gun 1st rate (planned as the 'Royal Frederick') launched at Portsmouth in 1839. In 1859 she was converted to steam auxiliary, reducing her armament to 86 guns.
