Title: Two views of an East Indiaman of the time of King William III.
Description: A portrait of a powerfully armed East India Company vessel, identifiable by the striped ensign, jack and pendants. The crew can be seen in the rigging in the view to the right, busy with the sails or climbing the shrouds. The vessel mounts over sixty guns, which would however have been smaller than those in a man-of-war of equivalent size. During the 17th century it was vessels of this size that traded between Blackwall and Calcutta or other Indian ports, laden with the merchandise of two civilisations.
