The 'Agamemnon' engaging four French frigates and a brig near Sardinia, 27 October 1793
The third, but second in order of events, in a series of ten drawings (PAF5871- 5874, PAF5876, PAF5880-5881 and PAF5883-5885) of mainly lesser-known incidents in Nelson's career, apparently intended for a set of engravings. Pocock's own numbered description of the subject in a letter of 2 June 1810 is: ' 3. The "Agamemnon" Engages 4 French Frigates and a Corvette.' For the rather complemm x circumstances of the commission, and Pocock's related letters, see PAF5871, ' View of St Eustatius with the "Boreas" '. A larger version of this action of Sardinia, from a different viewpoint, belongs to the Royal Naval Club, Portsmouth. Pocock also emm xhibited the subject at the O.W.C.S in 1811 (no. 17). Signed by the artist and dated, lower right.
