The 'Spartan's' engagement with a Neapolitan squadron, 3 May 1810: end of the action

The second of a pair of paintings showing an action between the British ship 'Spartan' and Neapolitan and French squadron in the Bay of Naples (see also BHC0594). On 1 May 1810, the British frigates 'Spartan', 38 guns, and 'Success', 32 guns, while cruising off Ischia, chased a Neapolitan squadron almost inside the mole at Naples. This Neapolitan squadron consisted of the frigates 'Cerere', 40 guns, under Captain Ramatuelle, the 'Fama', 30 guns, Captain Guiseppe de Cosa, the 8-gun brig 'Sparviero' and 8-gun cutter 'Achille'. The 'Spartan' is shown here in port broadside on the left, after the action. Men are visible in the rigging attending to the damaged sails. There is a small ship's boat alongside with other figures on board. The vessel astern in the centre, with the broken mast, is the captured Neapolitan brig 'Sparviero', 8 guns, and now flies the British flag. Other ships of the defeated Neapolitan squadron can be seen in the background on the right, with Naples beyond.
