The Ville de Paris' under full sail
A portrait of 'Ville de Paris', a first-rate of 110 guns built in 1795 at Chatham Dockyard. Admiral William Cornwallis's blue flag is shown at the main. In 1801, he assumed the command of the Channel Fleet from St Vincent and was in turn, succeeded by him in 1806. The white cliffs in the distance suggest that this ship portrait is set in the Channel, with other smaller ships around her. Since Cornwallis took command of 'Ville de Paris' in 1803, and was promoted from Admiral of the Blue to Admiral of the White in 1804, this painting was probably made in 1803.
