The 'Brunswick' and the 'Vengeur du Peuple' at the Battle of the 1 June 1794
An incident from the five-day battle known as the 'Glorious First of June 1794', during the French Revolutionary War, 1793-1802, between the British fleet under Lord Howe and the French fleet under Rear-Admiral Villaret-Joyeuse. This was the first great fleet battle of the French Wars of 1793-1815. The painting shows the 'Vengeur du Peuple' on the right, almost stern-on and flying the French flag, in action with the Brunswick to port in starboard-quarter view and flying the red ensign. The 'Brunswick' is also in action, on her port side, with the 'Achille', 74 guns, shown stern-on and losing all her masts. The holes in the sails of the ships demonstrate the ferocity of the battle.
