Possibly a portrait of the 'Triumph', 70 guns, viewed from the port beam. She was built in 1623 and sold in 1688. The ports on the broadside are wreathed ports of an early type: the foremost port on the upper deck has a square decoration. An entering port at the break of the forecastle. There are latrines in the main chains. The ship's figurehead is Neptune, drawn by two seahorses. The ship has been identified as either the 'Triumph' or the 'St George', which were the only two ships with three complete decks to have such as small upper deck and quarterdeck or poop armament at the period when the drawing was likely to have been made. In 1677, they were armed with 22 guns on the gundeck, 22 on the middle deck, 20 on the upper deck and 6 on the quarterdeck (or poop).
