The Blackwall frigate 'Owen Glendower' at anchor off a coastline
Painting previously entitled 'The Blackwall frigate Owen Glendower coming into a harbour'. It in fact shows her at anchor with sails spread to dry off the English south coast, probably just east of Hastings if the ruins on the cliff are indicative. A 'Blackwall frigate' Indiaman of 852 tons built by Green's in 1839, she flies the pre-1843 house flag of their Blackwall line at her main truck (in which the blue square overlays the red St George's cross). The ship was initially registered for voyages between London and Madras. There is also a model of her in the collection (SLR0780) and a print by T. G. Dutton of her entering Calcutta (PAH0566).
