The Battle of the Saints, 12 April 1782, end of the action
The Saints are a group of small islets in the West Indies between Guadeloupe and Dominica. They gave their name to the final sea battle of the War of American Independence, 1775-1783, which was fought under their lee between the British West Indies fleet commanded by Admiral Sir George Rodney, with 36 ships of the line, and his French counterpart, Vice-Admiral the Comte de Grasse with 30 ships of the line. The painting shows the action at sunset when de Grasse's flagship 'Ville de Paris', 104 guns, surrendered.
