The capture of the 'Marquise d'Antin' and 'Louis Erasme' by the English Privateers 'Duke' and 'Prince Frederick'
A painting testifying to one of the most successful ventures involving two English privateers& the 'Duke', 20 guns, and the 'Prince Frederick', 28 guns, commanded by Captain John Talbot, which captured two out of a squadron of three French merchantmen returning from Lima. The ship to the left of the picture is the 'Marquise d'Antin', port-broadside-to with her colours struck, sails in disarray, holed by shot and her main topmast shot away. Figures involved in the action can be seen on the deck of the English ship. On the right the 'Louis Erasme' and 'Prince Frederick' are in action. The Frenchman is on the left, port-quarter view, firing at the 'Prince Frederick', which is shown in port-bow view replying. There is a man at the 'Louis Erasme's' ensign halyards, so she must be in the act of striking. In the centre background of the picture the 'Dame de De'livrance' makes her escape.
