The 'Mordaunt'

The 'Mordaunt', fourth Rate, built in 1681, 46 guns, was bought for the navy from Lord Mordaunt in 1683, and wrecked ten years later. The pendant flying from the main mast suggests that when the drawing was made she was already a naval ship and therefore a date of 1683 or later is likely. It was probably made as a preparatory study for an oil painting now in a private collection commissioned to mark the entry of the 'Mordaunt' into the Royal Navy.
