The man-of-war 'Culloden'
Inscribed in black ink 'Culloden man of war', lower left, and signed 'D Serres', lower right ,in a browner ink. The particular interest of this drawing is that it is clearly modelled on the similar studies of the van de Veldes, especially Willem the Elder, a century earlier. Serres' considerable collection of other artists' drawings included a number by the van de Veldes of which the Museum has at least two (Robinson I: 294 and Robinson II, 1026). There were three 'Cullodens' , all of 74 guns, in the Navy in rapid succession, the name commemorating the defeat of the Scottish Jacobites there by the 'Butcher' Duke of Cumberland in 1746. The first was built in 1747 and sold in 1770; the second buit in 1776 and wrecked on Long Island in 1781 - which is probably the one shown here - and the third built in 1783 and broken up in 1813.
